MONTREAL, QUEBEC-- It's been a bit of a tough go for the U.S.S. Little Rock as it continues to make its way from Buffalo and Lake Erie to its home port of Mayport, FL.
The newest member of the Navy fleet left Buffalo in mid-December following the ship's Commissioning ceremony at Canalside.
Since then, the crew has been met with several delays due to ice conditions and disabled vessels needed to help the ship navigate its way through the St. Lawrence and on to the Atlantic Ocean. It is currently moored in Montreal.
The crew is said to be doing well; but was hoping to arrive in the Jacksonville-area in time for Sunday's Bills' game.
