New Navy ship to be named for Vietnam Marine Medal of Honor recipient | Marine Corps Times

Marine Gunnery Sgt. John L. Canley was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2018 after exemplifying his bravery by fighting off multiple attacks in Hue City, Vietnam in 1968. The Navy announced in mid-November that an Expeditionary Sea Base-6, or ESB-6, the class ship will be named in his honor. The ESB ship class is used through a range of military operations supporting multiple operational phases, like the Expeditionary Transfer Dock (ESD) class.
