USS MONTANA pier-side in the James River for completion and sea trials before commissioning. Montana’s Namesake Vessel and the newest Virginia Class SSN is finally afloat and will soon be commissioned and on the way to join the Fleet. WMMOA has been a supporter of the USS Montana Committee for several years and continues to follow and support the boat and the crew. We are excited to be a part of this USS Montana family. The full story of the MONTANA’s launch and events planned around Montana before the warship’s commissioning is available on the www.ussmontanacommittee.us website News blog page. Also on the News blog is a fascinating story of three MONTANA crew members who brought a Treasure State touch to their recent promotions to Chief Petty Officer.
