CEREMONY ONLY ATTENDANCE
The commissioning ceremony is an official U. S. Navy event for which there is no admission fee. Admission is, however, by invitation only for security reasons and due to limited seating. Invitation lists will be submitted by crew members, U. S. Navy organizations involved in the ship’s construction and the Coronado Council of the Navy League. Requests for tickets should be received at least 60 days prior to the ceremony.
If you have donated to the commissioning or are a guest of a crewmember on USS Michael Monsoor, DO NOT request tickets thru this website. Donors are automatically added to the list to receive an invitation and crewmember guests should contact your crewmember for invitations. This is to ensure you are seated in the appropriate seating section.
