A BIG LIFE
Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), the first air- craft carrier built making extensive use of modular construction, was commissioned 16 months before contract delivery date, saving the U.S. Navy and
American taxpayers over $80 million.
Abraham Lincoln (CVN72) and George
Washington (CVN73) are the next two aircraft carriers being built through modular construction.
