As Phoenix mayor and a Naval officer it was my privilege to celebrate the relationship between Phoenix and the proud heritage of combat vessels named Phoenix going back to the Revolutionary War. In this photo, I am presenting to the Commanding Officer of the USS Phoenix (SBN-702) a Los Angeles class submarine, a painting of the Phoenix’ sail to hang in his wardroom. There are currently efforts by the Phoenix Saguaro Chapter, The Association of the US Navy to bring that Phoenix’ sail to Arizona to display proudly. I have enthusiastically supported these efforts for years and hope this dream will finally come to pass. For more information go to Save Our Sail -- SOS Foundation on Facebook.
