The USS Tulsa Comes To Life

In a rare honor, #SanFrancisco played host to the commissioning of the newest United States Navy warship, the USS Tulsa the Saturday morning after Valentines Day.


Designed for close shore battles, the Tulsa is a stealth ship whose main purpose is to keep waterways clear inside of a warzone.


With dignitaries from around the world (the mayors of San Francisco and Tulsa spoke at the event), the #USSTulsa was officially commissioned under rainy skies over San Francisco.


Be sure to checkout our YouTube video of the Tulsa blowing a salute to the cities of San Francisco and Tulsa at the conclusion of the commissioning ceremony.
