We had an amazing time in San Francisco. And I was lucky enough to go on the Tiger Cruise too. I'm working on a blog that I will post here at Navy Dads where I'll share some pics and video.

Yeah it sure is going to be packed it's Fleet Week but it's gonna be a blast I'm sure!

@Ralph they live streamed the Christening I'm almost sure the Navy will do the same for the Commissioning. Drop the LHA-6 Ombudsman a line and inquire..

AMERICA Family and Friends,

It’s official! AMERICA will be commissioned in San Francisco, California on Oct. 11, 2014.

The AMERICA crew looks forward to this momentous day and we could not be more honored to commission AMERICA in a city so rich in naval history...
