USS New Hampshire
Thanks to a letter writing campaign by a group of schoolchildren from Dover, New Hampshire, the state will soon have a Virginia-class attack submarine named in honor of the Granite state.
Lynch said it is fitting that New Hampshire has a submarine named in its honor seeing as the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, which has the mission of maintaining the Navy's sub fleet, has such a rich naval history.
The article which can be found here goes to prove how just a handful of people can mold public opinion.
