This is to inform you that Alaska Class Cruiser Puerto
Rico will be ready for sea in a couple of days. At that
time the Puerto Rico will take up station in the Hudson
River where, thanks to a full array of "enhanced"
weapons, she will be able to defend both New York and
Bayonne from whatever the enemy may throw at us.
Captain Lyle Manning will continue to serve as Naval
Liaison Officer to ensure that all of the various issues
related to fueling, logistics, and communications are
properly attended to.
