USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) is the eighth Nimitz-class supercarrier of the United States Navy, named after the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman. The keel was laid by Newport News Shipbuilding on November 29, 1993 and the ship was christened on September 7, 1996. The official launching of the ship was on September 13, 1996. The crew moved aboard ship from contract housing in Newport News in January 1998. The ship successfully completed builder's trials on June 11, 1998 and acceptance sea trials on June 25, 1998 before being commissioned on July 25, 1998. The builder's trials and sea trials were delayed from the initial scheduling dates in May 1998 due to noise issues in one of the reactor closure heads during hydrostatic testing. HST was authorized as USS United States but her name was changed before the keel laying.
