Ridgefield Sailor serves aboard USS Indianapolis

Ridgefield Sailor Petty Officer 2nd Class Louis Catanzaro, serves aboard USS Indianapolis 

One of the phenomenal sailors on board the USS Indianapolis (LCS 17) is Petty Officer 2nd Class Louis Catanzaro, an electronics technician.

As an electronics technician, the Ridgefield native is responsible for operating and managing the USS Indianapolis’ electronics system and subsystems, including communication and navigation equipment.

Prior to joining the Navy, Catanzaro graduated from Ridgefield High School. His previous commands include the USS Nashville, USS Carney, Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station Jacksonville, and USS Emory S. Land. Catanzaro earned his Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS) qualification in 2009 and his Information Warfare specialist qualification in 2015.

Catanzaro’s favorite part about being an electronics technician in the LCS community is, “the ability to get to know everyone in the small crew.”

We salute Catanzaro and all that he has done for the LCS community!

LCS is a highly maneuverable, lethal and adaptable ship designed to support focused mine countermeasures, anti-submarine warfare, and surface warfare missions. LCS integrates new technology and capability to affordably support current and future mission capability from deep water to the littorals.
