Commissioning of USS TULSA LCS 16
The Secretary of Navy has announced that the USS TULSA (LCS 16) will be commissioned in San Francisco in early 2019. USS TULSA is an Independence Class littoral combat ship which will be assigned to Littoral Combat Ship Squadron One in San Diego with mine warfare as its primary mission.
Since the Navy is not authorized by law to pay for the commissionings of its ships, the Navy has asked the Pacific Central Region of the Navy League of the United States, the Naval Order of the United States, and other Navy supporters to sponsor, raise funds and conduct this commissioning. Your contributions will support this traditional time-honored event, as well as make improvements to the ship’s habitability and create and sustain the crew’s welfare, recreation and morale fund.
BE A PART OF THIS IMPORTANT AND IMPRESSIVE EVENT! Take an ownership interest in the first day of the life of USS TULSA. Share the pride when this beautiful new ship comes alive and joins the Fleet. You will want to be there when the crew runs onto their new ship to “Anchors Aweigh.” Your financial contribution will help make this happen!
All donations are tax-deductible and will be listed in the donors brochure. Here is an opportunity to make a difference. Let’s send the TULSA and its crew to sea with our support and gratitude. The Navy, USS TULSA, and its crew are counting on all of us to make this commissioning a success. Your donations will help assure that success.
DO YOUR PART TO MAKE THE USS TULSA THE NEWEST AND FINEST SHIP IN THE FLEET. SEND YOUR CONTRIBUTION TODAY payable to “NLUS Commissioning Committee” to:
