USNS Montford Point


USNS Montford Point (T-MLP-1), the lead ship of her class of Mobile Landing Platforms (MLP), is a ship named in honor of African American Marine Corps recruits who trained at Montford Point Camp, North Carolina, from 1942 to 1949.

The Montford Point is also seen in the background in the most recent FIAT Commercial which happened to be filmed here on Mare Island. (video)
