PORTSMOUTH, NH (May 26, 2018) Crew members of the Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Manchester (LCS 14) line the brow during the ship's commissioning ceremony after the ship's sponsor, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) gives the traditional order to 'man this ship and bring her to life.' Manchester is the 12th littoral combat ship to enter the fleet and the seventh of the Independence variant. The ship is named for the city of Manchester, New Hampshire and is assigned to Naval Surface Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jacob I.
