The USS Minneapolis Saint Paul Commissioning Ceremony

In July 2019 the United States Navy announced that (future) USS Minneapolis Saint Paul LCS 21 will commission in the Port of Duluth.  


We're  thrilled with this decision!  


The US  Navy will announce date of the commissioning ceremony about three months prior to the event.  We anticipate this announcement will be made in July 2020.

Freedom-class warships are built at Fincantieri Marinette Marine just 40 minutes north of Green Bay, WI.  Click to learn about them.


This shipyard is the only inland yard to build warships for the US Navy.  


Future USS Minneapolis Saint Paul LCS 21 is estimated to launch Summer 2019, with commissioning the first half of 2020.

Freedom-class warships are launched sideways into the river right after the Ships Sponsor breaks the ceremonial bottle of champagne against the hull.  This officially names the ship.
