USS America, the first of the America-class amphibious assault ships, is an engineering wonder. With a displacement of 45,000 tons, the America is as large as many allied nation aircraft carriers. Her wonder extends within her hull as well, supported by a technologically-advanced “green” power plant that is projected to save an average of $15 million in fuel costs every six months. And when the Navy looked for leaders to take the America’s helm, it chose graduates from the prestigious Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, Calif.
