Phil, Did you get an invitation yet? My son is assigned to the ship and his list has been submitted but no official invites yet. The person interviewed in the "Training Heats Up" video is my sailor.

Good one Phil hope more info is posted as far as details for Commissioning Day.. If it does happen on Fleet Week which I am confident it will, the city will be a mad house and exciting all at the same time due to these events..

Booked our flights last night. I wish they could have given some better preliminary info for planning purposes. We were like 'should we fly there on Wed or Thursday?' and 'should we come back home on Monday or Tuesday?' and have no idea so we just guessed. All we have to go on is the COmmander said Saturday of Fleet Week. Is there any FAQ on commissioning weekends where we can get an idea of what is involved? Do they have a reception or anything for family members, or are we just out on the docks with the general public? It sure would help having any info for families like ours, who have zero experience. /rant over

They are still denying that it's going to happen on Fleet Week but we are about to book our flights. Going with Southwest so we can change the tickets if the dates change...
