The 389 ft. Littoral Combat Ship, Fort Worth, arrived at the Port of Galveston without much fanfare under gray skies at 7:35 a.m. today. The ship was assisted by two tugboats provided by G&H Towing, the W.D. Haden of Bay Houston Towing and the Lamar by Suderman/Young Towing.
Orange and gray, US Coast Guard patrol boats with a large machine gun mounted on their bow, escorted the war ship to Pier 21 for docking. Other vessels in the Galveston Ship Channel, like shrimp boats, fishing boats, party boats and the Galveston/Bolivar ferry carried on with business as normal.
