The Navy will christen its next Zumwalt-class destroyer Saturday, whose name  honors the fallen Navy SEAL who leaped on a grenade to save his teammates.

The destroyer Michael Monsoor will be christened at Bath Iron Works, Maine. Sally Monsoor, Michael’s mother, is the ship’s sponsor and will break a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow, according to a Navy release.
