In 2023, the year Vincent G. Danz's namesake ship is commissioned, the Coast Guard's youngest personnel will be 17, born years after he was killed on Sept. 11, 2001, in the World Trade Center attacks.

The ship is to be a 154-foot-long cutter with a crew of 24, according to Chief Warrant Officer Mariana O'Leary, a Coast Guard spokeswoman. Danz, then 37, was believed to have been on the fourth floor of the World Trade Center's North Tower.

Koop said he believes his bid was denied in retaliation for his role as president of the local police union.
