USS North Carolina Commissioning

This weekend my wife and I will be traveling to Willmington NC to witness the commissioning of the SSgN777. We are only 2 hours away and I was lucky to get an invitation.
We have already toured the Battleship BB55 several times.

Re: USS North Carolina Commissioning

It was just a year ago we were at the commissioning of the Hawaii. That was a great event. I remember at the time you talking with the 2 men from the North Carolina about getting an invitation to their commissioning. I guess the didn't forget you. I think the one was Chief Compton. I don't remember the supply officers name. If you see them, tell them the Sea Robin crew is thinking of them and they owe you a couple of beers. I know you will have a wonderful time. I wish I could be there.

Re: Re: USS North Carolina Commissioning

Compton is no longer the commissioning COB! Got in touch with the new COB and he arranged to get me on the list. I received my tickets and went. About 6,000 bodies attended. It was a nice ceremony and the party was very good. I don't think it was a memorable as the Hawaii though. We had Pepsi or water.
Met some guys from the Groton base and thanked them for their hospitality for the "Robin" guys.
It was a great day for North Carolina and a beautiful day in Willminton for the event.
Senator Elizabeth Dole gave us a nice speach also.
The SSN 777 is the fourth in the Virginia class, (Virginia, Texas, Hawaii, North Carolina, soon New Hampshire) and their will be about 6 to 10 more in this group. The SecNav says they are looking to put 2 per year on line.
