On April 3, 2018, the Secretary of the Navy chose Pensacola as the site for commissioning USS Tripoli LHA 7. The estimated date of the commissioning is March/April of 2020. The USS Tripoli is named for the Battle of Derna in 1805, the first battle fought on foreign soil by the military of the fledgling United States of America. The ship is 850 feet long (about the size of the USS Lexington) with a crew of 1050 Sailors. She will be able to embark over 1700 Marines and is the first LHA, designed to support the new F-35B Lightning II.
The commissioning will occur at the pier aboard NAS Pensacola in front of 6,000 to 10,000 guests. The Commissioning Committee, including members of the Pensacola Navy League, the Pensacola Marine Corps League, and the Greater Pensacola Chamber of Commerce will begin raising funds to support the crew and all the events of commissioning week.
For those unfamiliar, we expect the week of the commissioning to look like this:
- Tuesday & Wednesday - Crew receptions. We do two so that everyone will have a chance to attend, regardless of their duty section
- Thursday - Commissioning committee reception on the ship
- Friday - Sponsor’s luncheon on the ship. The sponsor for USS Tripoli is Mrs Lynn Mabus.
Chairman’s Reception at the National Museum of Naval Aviation
- Saturday - Breakfast for the commissioning platform VIPs

We will put out more detailed information once the date is set and the events gets closer. Stay tuned!
