Three silver place settings that were originally housed and used on the USS Little Rock CLG-4.

The newly commissioned U.S.S. Little Rock LCS-9 will be carrying out its duties with a bit of history from its namesake.

On Monday, the Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park presented the crew of the new $440 million Little Rock with three silver place settings that were originally housed and used on the USS Little Rock CLG-4.

The place settings will be the only part of the decommissioned Little Rock that will be on the new LCS-9. The three settings will be displayed in the Ward Room, the Chief’s Mess and a display case for the general crew.

The LCS-9 is scheduled to leave Buffalo Wednesday at 8 a.m. From here, the ship will travel to what will be its U.S. Naval base, Mayport, FL.
