UPDATED: Schedule announced for commissioning of USS Sioux City in November

| October 25, 2018
A ship’s commissioning is the ceremony that marks the US Navy putting the ship in to commission.  At that moment it transitions from a hunk of steel to a US war-fighting ship capable of deploying around the world in defense of the United States and our interests.  
 
Commissioning a ship includes a week of festivities and celebration.  USS Sioux City will pull in at least a week before the actual commissioning date.  The week’s events will look something like this– subject to change!
