After having our Baltimore/Oregon cancelled at the end of World War II; my hometown is FINALLY getting a ship named after it again.

Congrats! Personally, I find it preferable to have a town name for surface ships rather than, say, the submarine that currently carries the Pittsburgh name for example. Although I bellyache for no reason; the local large war memorial has the bell from the Baltimore-class Pittsburgh and will soon add the bow ornament of the armored cruiser Pittsburgh to an outdoor display.

SSBN/SSN's are essentially the first strike weapon of the USN, I can't think of any other class that would be more prestigious. The new generation of Carriers are a joke fiscally, ditto whatever that thing is that the Navy calls a Destroyer. Subs have been and will continue to be the most effective arm of the USN.
