Congratulations to Jill Donnelly!

Saturday was a special day for our colleague, Jill Donnelly!

Jill has the distinct honor of being the ship sponsor for LCS 17, the future USS INDIANAPOLIS. In blizzard-like conditions in northern Wisconsin, she christened LCS 17 on Saturday morning in Navy tradition by breaking a champagne bottle across the ship’s bow.
