Thank You from Vice Admiral Dirk J. Debbink,
Committee Chair

On behalf of the entire Commissioning Committee, thank you to all who braved the elements to help bring the USS Milwaukee (LCS 5) to life at Veterans Park last November.  We sincerely appreciate your support for the ship and its crews; and your patience with the necessary security measures around the ship as well as the challenges brought on by the weather.

Our ship is now part of the U.S. Navy Fleet, and she will sail forth to represent Milwaukee and our nation around the world, in peace and in conflict.

To LCS Crews 104 and 108: Fair winds and following seas, USS Milwaukee!  Thank you for gracing the Port of Milwaukee with your presence this past week.

- Vice Admiral Dirk J. Debbink, USNR (ret), Commissioning Committee Chair

Thank You from Commander Ken Bridgewater, Commanding Officer, USS Milwaukee (LCS 5)

Thank you to the wonderful people of Milwaukee for making the commissioning of the Navy's newest warship so incredibly special.  Your warmth and hospitality will be carried onboard for as long as she sails in support of freedom around the world.

- Commander Ken Bridgewater, USN, Commanding Officer, USS Milwaukee (LCS 5)
