Commissioning of the USS Little Rock LCS-9
The commissioning of the USS Little Rock LCS 9 took place on December 16th, 2017 at Canalside Buffalo adjacent to the Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park.
Thank you to everyone who attended the event at Canalside Buffalo as this larger than life ship officially joins the U.S. Navy fleet. The event is historic for LCS 9, her crew, the Navy and all of Buffalo and Western New York as this was the first time in the 242-year US Navy history, that a new ship is commissioned alongside her namesake. This is indeed a historic event that drew national interest!
Tickets for the Commissioning Ceremony on December 16th were SOLD OUT, but the general public was still be able to see the USS Little Rock LCS 9 while the ship is docked at Canalside for Commissioning Week, December 8th–17th.
