Liberty Maritime Corporation - Naming Ceremony for the MV Liberty Promise

The President and CEO of Liberty Maritime Corporation, out of New York, was in town recently for the Naming Ceremony of their newest ship, the MV Liberty Promise.
The ceremony took place dockside, with the reception following at the Redbank Club at Charleston Naval Station. The Liberty Promise is a transport ship to be used by the military. Attending the ceremony and reception were representatives of all branches of the military along with many local dignitaries and politicians.
