Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced that the Navy's newest dry cargo ship will be named the USS Cesar Chavez.
This is the same Secretary Mabus who stood up and cheered when Pelosi decided to name a ship after John Murtha.
What's next? The USS Malcolm X? The USS Mao? The USS Castro?
If the Navy wanted to honor HIspanic contributions to our nation, they could have chosen one of the Hispanic MOH winners from WWII. Or for Sgt. Raphael Peralta, a Marine killed in Iraq who has been nominated for the MOH.
