I read with great pride the statement about The U S S Little Rock being commissioned in Buffalo in 2016.
As I read the article, I could feel the pride washing up inside me and my eyes began to fill up.  What a great joy and honor for all of us who served on The Rock, regardless of the year, the rank, or the Navy or Marine Corp, it was something we should and could be proud of.  Thank you to our association for keeping us up to date on this momentous event.
I haven't been to a association event for many years for various reasons, but I would surely like to be present on the "New Rock's" commissioning, in 2016.  PLEASE keep informed of the actual date.
I am still over flowing.

Joe - Very well written.

I am sure many of your shipmates (I am one, and served aboard with you) feel exactly the same.  I know I certainly do.

We will do our best to keep members informed of developments as we proceed toward the commissioning of the newest incarnation of USS Little Rock.

Thanks, regards
Frank

Joe - I imagine by now you are aware that the commissioning of LCS-9 is scheduled for November, 2016, to take place in Buffalo NY.

Thank you Frank.  I assume it is still in Buffalo. 
Do you have a date as yet?

Joe - other than November, 2016 - no definite date has been announced.

There has been a commissioning committee put in place and the Chairman and one member have joined our Association.  So, with our connections to the Officers of LCS-9 and to the newly-formed committee, we should receive up-to-date information - and, of course, will pass along to our members when known.

Joe - and all Association members:

We have been informed that the planned date for commissioning LCS-9 is November 12, 2016, in Buffalo.

This depends on the timely commissioning of USS Detroit (LCS-7), which is scheduled for mid-2016. 

More to come in the next months.
