The Committee was formed first and foremost to serve the needs of the Navy, and those of the Sailors in the ship’s crews, in support of the commissioning of the USS Milwaukee, presently being built in Marinette, WI.  The “commissioning” is when this brand new, 390-foot-long U.S. Navy warship will be “brought to life” and enter service in the Navy.  It is presently scheduled for the fall of 2015 at Veterans Park on Milwaukee’s waterfront, and will include a week-long series of events leading up to the actual commissioning.  These events will celebrate the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, and the 5th U.S. Navy ship in our nation’s history to be named in honor of Milwaukee!

This Will Be The Fifth U. S. Navy Ship Named For The City Of Milwaukee
  • USS Milwaukee (1864-Monitor)
  • USS Milwaukee (C 21)
  • USS Milwaukee (CL 5)
  • USS Milwaukee (AOR 2)
  • USS Milwaukee (LCS 5)
  • Perhaps even more exciting is the long-term opportunity we have to support the crew members and their families over the life of the ship -- for the next 30 years -- by providing resources that increase the Sailors’ quality of life and enhance morale and welfare while deployed away from their families.  With your help and involvement, the Committee looks forward to providing financial assistance and education grants to the Sailors and their families for years to come.
