PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) – The 76th Secretary of the Navy Honorable Richard V. Spencer paid his first visit to a company he says is vital to Navy operations.

Spencer, alongside state leaders and Huntington Ingalls officials, toured two ships and met with the sailors.

Spencer is the man in charge of the Department of the Navy and the one who oversees the construction of naval ships.

“Ladies and gentlemen it’s great to be down here today in Pascagoula to see I think one of the highest performing, if not the highest performing shipyard that the U.S. Navy has,” said Spencer.
