Included in the early-morning telecast will be a feature by Rinaldi, who speaks with Clemson walk-on wide receiver Daniel Rodriguez, a decorated Afghanistan war veteran.

Additional telecast information will be revealed next week.

About the USS SAN DIEGO

USS SAN DIEGO (LPD 22) is the sixth amphibious landing transport dock ship in the San Antonio class and is crewed by up 400 Sailors. Her primary mission is to transport up to 800 U.S. Marines and their vehicles and equipment and launch them for an amphibious landing on a beach anywhere around the world. SAN DIEGO is the fourth ship named for the beautiful California city, but the first to be homeported there. She is also currently the only ship in the Navy homeported in her namesake city. SAN DIEGO was built at Huntington Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss. and delivered to the Navy Dec. 19, 2011. The ship arrived in San Diego in April 2012 and placed in service during her commissioning May 19, 2012 in downtown San Diego. She is currently preparing for final contract trails and will deploy in 2014.
