It is a time-honored tradition, this ceremony that commissions a ship of the United States Navy. The commissioning ceremony signifies the acceptance for service and the entry of a ship into the fleet.


The naval commissioning ceremony has been a tradition of all navies for centuries. It has been in the United States Navy since its beginning. The commissioning is the final act that marks entrance of a man-of-war into the naval forces of her nation. This is the final and perhaps the most significant event of the triad that brings a ship to life: keel laying, launching and christening, and commissioning.


Why We Raise Funds:


The USS Minneapolis Saint Paul Commissioning Committee raised funds to pay for expenses the Navy cannot legally pay for.  We are the Minnesota Navy League.


Our budget for this event will be $350,000 to include a scholarship on behalf of USS Minneapolis Saint Paul to the University of Minnesota Foundation.
