The U.S. Navy provides a list of ships on its website, Navy.mil. To locate the list, click on About, and choose FAQs. Scroll down the alphabetical list of topics to Ships - What Happened to My Ship, and select List of Active Navy Ships from the choices.
The Navy lists the ships in alphabetical order, with ships named after an individual listed by the first name. For example, the USS Abraham Lincoln appears under A, not L. Each ship's listing includes its home port. Clicking on the name of the ship opens a page with more information such as the mailing address, the commanding officer, photos and the history of the ship.
