USS Monongahela underway again

I know few will care beyond me..... but I actually caught this news on the local NPR station where it was local news this morning.  The USS Monongahela was indeed underway for the first time in a decade after having broken away from her moorings due to storms on the east coast last week.   The ship is awaiting being made into razor blades.

I just wonder if anyone showed any civic support for the USS Mon while it was operating.  The USS Pittsburgh is a submarine out there today and gets suppport from the local Navy League. People remember past ships, some even write about them.  Even ships like the SS McKeesport will occassionally get a little love from folks like Togyer.  But what about ships named for rivers? I bet few paid much attention to the USS Mon.  It even turns out to be the third ship named for the Mon since the Civil War. Who knew?
