Did you or a loved one serve on The Iron Gator?


USS Essex LHD-2 is a Wasp-class Landing Helicopter Dock in service with the United States Navy. The amphibious assault ship was built at what is now Huntington Ingalls Industries in Pascagoula, Mississippi. She was launched 23 February 1991 and commissioned on 17 October 1992. She is the fifth ship named for Essex County, Massachusetts. Essex served as the command ship for Expeditionary Strike Group Seven. She is designed to carry a full range of Navy and Marine Corps helicopters, Harrier II AV-8B Jump Jets, Air Cushion Landing Craft and many other landing craft and amphibious vehicles.
