Green Bay Embraces Namesake Ship

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Michael Sheehan, Navy Office of Community Outreach Public Affairs Citizens of “Titletown” rolled out the red carpet for their city’s namesake ship, Pre-commissioning Unit (PCU) Green Bay (LPD 20), during several civic ceremonies June 25. Green Bay’s prospective commanding officer Cmdr. Calvin Slocumb and his planned relief, Cmdr. Joseph Olson traveled to Green Bay to strengthen the ship’s already strong ties to the community. Green Bay Mayor James J. Schmitt hosted the officers at the annual Kids Day Festival at Fisk Park. The commanders mixed with the crowd, and posed for pictures. “This ship is a really wonderful thing for our city," said Schmitt. "Imagine all the places the ship will visit, and in each place it will bring our name, and the green and gold colors of our Green Bay Packers football team.” Slocumb and Olson, both natives of Wisconsin, also presented a model of the Green Bay to the city’s Neville Public Museum, where it will be displayed alongside exhibits highlighting local history and a model of the original USS Green Bay (PG 101). Nancy Croy, principal of the Green Bay’s partnership school Vince Lombardi Middle School, hosted a reception for the commanders at famed Lambeau Field, football home of the Packers.
