Capt. David Miller, from Blue Earth, Minnesota, relieved retiring Capt. Shawn Johnston as Commander, Littoral Combat Ship Squadron Two during a change of command ceremony and retirement ceremony at Naval Station Mayport, Nov. 15.
Miller, the new Littoral Combat Ship Squadron Two commodore, had this to say about assuming command,
“The LCS team is forward leaning, professional and motivated,” said Miller. “The mission of our LCS team is clear, to become a lethal, forward deployed, naval force. Our job is to man, train, and equip these extraordinary ships to operate seamlessly and decisively across all domains. I am thrilled to embark on this extraordinary journey and be a part in continuing the LCS legacy.”
LCS is a highly maneuverable, lethal and adaptable ship designed to support focused mine countermeasures, anti-submarine warfare, and surface warfare missions. LCS integrates new technology and capability to affordably support current and future mission capability from deep water to the littorals.
