Request Tickets to the Commissioning
We are excited as our ship is now the next submarine to enter the Fleet. The commissioning will happen 7 Oct 2017, 1100 EDT in Norfolk Virginia. Invitation requests must be made before 1 Sep 2017 to allow for mailing.
Invitations to the Commissioning are provided by the U.S. Navy rather than the Commissioning Committee. You should anticipate the invitation before 6 Sep 2017. You will then be asked to RSVP with names to the Navy who will mail ticket packages, general information that will include security and parking information and any other information you may need to attend the commissioning ceremony. Each individual requires a ticket to attend the ceremony.
Several "by invitation" events surround the commissioning and occur only because of the generosity of donors - please be a donor! Events include: VIP Tour of the Ship, Chairman's Reception, VIP Breakfast, Commissioning Committee and VIP Social. All funds for these events, less the official ceremony come from Donations. The Navy is very limited in what they can pay for. Please consider an appropriate donation with your request.
