MONTANA Commissioning Tickets Update (posted 6/16/22)

Tickets are now being mailed to those who responded to the Navy’s formal invitations to the commissioning of the USS MONTANA on Saturday, June 25.

However, if your tickets have not arrived by the time you leave for Norfolk, Virginia, a duplicate replacement set will be available at a special Navy Will Call desk. It will be adjacent to the USS Montana Committee’s information desk on the second level of the Norfolk Waterside Marriott Hotel at 235 East Main Street in Norfolk. Your tickets may be picked up there.

The Navy’s Will Call desk will be open from 1:00 pm until 6:00 pm from Wednesday, June 22, through Friday, June 24. (Please note that the Committee’s desk hours are Thursday and Friday only, but on those days are slightly more expanded as shown in the schedule posted in a previous News blog item.)

Also, remember that the Navy does have some COVID-related requirements. Along with your identification and tickets you should be prepared to show proof of full vaccination, or documentation of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of your Naval Station Norfolk entry. That test documentation should be from an entity such as a drugstore, clinic or doctor’s office that administered your test and gave you the result.

Finally, we’ve been asked to remind you that the weather is likely to be hot and sticky, so please come prepared with appropriate clothing and a hat for the periods you will be outside.
For Friday tours be sure to wear casual clothing and closed-toe rubber-soled shoes. No sandals or flip-flops please.
