Planning and preparations for the commissioning of the U.S.S. Sioux City later this year are continuing at full steam ahead.
Rear Admiral Frank Thorp, who chairs the commissioning committee, says the date of the event remains fluid, and should take place this fall in Annapolis, Maryland:
OC………ready to fight and win. ;24
Thorp says in the meantime, work continues on the ship and the future crew is continuing their training:
OC………later in the summer. :19
The commissioning committee continues to work towards their goal of raising $800-thousand dollars in local funds for the ceremony.
OC…..leg up in education. :26
Eldon Roth of B-P-I and the City of Sioux City were acknowledged Thursday for their contributions to the fundraising effort.
