U.S.S. Portland Commissioning Ceremony
Saturday, April 21, 2018
Port of Portland, Terminal 2 3556 N.W. Front Ave., Portland, OR 97209
Welcome the U.S.S. Portland at this Commissioning Ceremony. Complimentary tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis via the registration link.
The Commissioning Ceremony is one of the most important traditional ceremonial milestones in the life of a U.S. Navy 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.
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.
