USS Trenton transferred to Indian Navy


Reported here, the first ever transfer of a U.S. Navy ship to the Indian Navy:
The amphibious transport dock ship USS Trenton (LPD 14), was decommissioned Jan. 17 in a ceremony at Naval Station Norfolk. Immediately following the decommissioning, Trenton was recommissioned and transferred to the Indian Navy, bearing the name INS Jalashwa.
Fair winds Jalashwa!

This could be part of a beautiful friendship between two great democracies.
