Several veterans from a previous USS Indiana, a World War II-era battleship, are recognized as Vice President Mike Pence speaks during the christening of the Virginia-class submarine Indiana at Newport News Shipbuilding Saturday morning April 29, 2017.

A total of 14 former Navy sailors from the last USS Indiana, the BB-58, a World War II-era battleship attended the christening. All in their 90s, they are among the roughly 60 or so men left from the original crew of 2,300.
