USS Portland (LPD 27) Commissioning Coming Up On 21 April 2018!

A week of exciting events are described on the USS Portland (LPD 27) Commissioning Committee’s website:

Commissioning Ceremony (Tickets Required)

“Official U.S. Navy Event conducted by the U.S. Navy
“The Commissioning Ceremony is one of the most important traditional ceremonial milestones in the life of the Ship, for it represents the acceptance of the Ship by the United States Navy and her entry in to the active fleet.  The Ceremony will occur in Portland, Oregon alongside Terminal 2 to provide the public with an opportunity to join in celebrating the success of their investments and to foster support and understanding for American Armed Forces.

“Post-Commissioning Reception

“Following the U.S. Navy Commissioning Ceremony, guests will be invited to the commissioning tents where refreshments, photo opportunities and ship tours will be arranged.”
