Our Norfolk, Virginia shipyard recently secured new contracts, worth a total of nearly $100 million, to work on two destroyers, the USS Porter (DDG 78) and the USS Laboon (DDG 58). The Laboon is due for a series of routine updates and improvements to the ship's military and technical capabilities. The Porter will receive more extensive repairs over the next several months, as a result of its collision with a Japanese oil tanker last summer.
