NORFOLK-- The Navy's newest ship will be commissioned tomorrow at Naval Station Norfolk.

It's named for Arlington County, Virginia, where flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon killing 184 people on Sept. 11.

The Arlington will become the Navy's eighth amphibious transport dock ship in the San Antonio class.
