President Donald Trump tweeted his congratulations to the crew of the newly commissioned Navy ship, The USS John Finn, The Hill reported Sunday.

"The #USSJohnFinn will provide essential capabilities to keep America safe. Our sailors are the best anywhere in the world. Congratulations!" Trump tweeted.

The ship was named for Lt. John Finn, a San Diego World War II veteran, who received the Medal of Honor for heroic acts during the attacks at Pearl Harbor in 1941. The ceremony to commission the ship took place Saturday at Pearl Harbor.

"During World War II, Chief Finn distinguished himself through heroic service to his fellow Sailors and our nation. I know the men and women who make up the crew of USS John Finn will carry his legacy forward with the same selfless service he distinguished more than 75 years ago," acting Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackly said in a statement.
