"USS Bataan Tour and Brunch"
Hosted by the AEME Affinity: NY and Hopkins NY
The USS Bataan (LHD-5) is a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship commissioned in 1997 and named to honor the defense of the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines. This ship launched March 15, 1996 and since then has been involved in multiple war, peace keeping and humanitarian missions.
Join other Hopkins alumni and friends for a rare opportunity to tour this active duty Navy amphibious assault ship while in port in New York. See first-hand and learn about this more than 40 thousand ton ship, its history,
crew and capabilities.
The morning will begin with two staggered tour groups. Once the tours are complete participants will walk across the street to Ogilvy & Mather for a light brunch, networking and a dynamic discussion about the Battle of Bataan and the role of the amphibious ships in the missions of: Strategic Presence, Projection of Power Ashore, Maintaining Sea Lines of Communication, National Diplomacy and Disaster Relief.
