Montanans Arrive for Commissioning! (posted 6/23/22)

Montanans are arriving in Norfolk for Saturday’s commissioning of SSN 794 as the USS MONTANA!

For those Montanans, there will be a final schedule copy at the USS Montana Committee information desk where name badges are picked up. That’s on the second level of the Norfolk Waterside Marriott Hotel, 235 East Main Street. It opens at 1 PM on Thursday, 7 AM on Friday.

The Navy Will Call desk in the same location, open from 9 until 6 PM each day. If Montanans’ tickets did not arrive in the mail by travel time, duplicates may be picked up.

For those not traveling to Norfolk, the Navy tells us that a live stream will be available beginning at 7:45 AM on Saturday. The link, , will not “go live” until that time.

The submarine looks terrific alongside the commissioning pier, with Montana-themed elements inside and out. Everyone here, including especially the crew and their families, is excited!
