The most powerful naval force ever to surface the seas, the U.S. Navy has evolved throughout the centuries, staying on the edge of technology, military and otherwise.

Full of symbolisms and traditions meant to showcase both its heritage and respect to those who serve and have served, as well as to the country they serve, and the vessels that have been the vehicle for that service.

But it’s not often that the public has the opportunity to witness a ceremony on which one of the Navy’s cherished vessels is put on the water.

This video shows the moment that the USS Billings (LCS-15), a Freedom-class littoral combat ship and the first ship in naval service named after Billings, Montana, hits the waters.

It’s the moment the ship is put on active service – the beginning of a voyage to defend our country’s freedom, where and whenever it’s called to do so.
