MONTPELIER, Vt. – Ticket requests for the USS Vermont commissioning ceremony April 18, 2020 in Groton, Conn. are available now. Gov. Scott will join boat sponsor, Gloria L. Valdez, the USS Vermont Commissioning Committee, and the Crew of the USS Vermont to welcome the new Virginia-class submarine into service for the U.S. Navy.
The USS Vermont is the 19th Virginia-class nuclear attack submarine to be built and the third U.S. warship to bear the name “Vermont.” This new ship will carry a crew of 15 officers and 120 enlisted. It also joins a legacy of two other nuclear submarines with ties to Vermont, the USS Ethan Allen, and the USS Montpelier.
The USS Vermont was christened Oct. 20, 2018 and will be put into service in April. Help send off the USS Vermont and attend the commissioning ceremony. Tickets can be requested at www.sites.google.com/view/vtssn792cc/request-tickets?authuser=0.
