Team VA Working on Navy Ship Commissioning
December 17, 2013
Milwaukee is preparing to experience the second naval ship commissioning in its history in 2015. The ship’s name – USS Milwaukee – increases the event’s significance to the Milwaukee community, as the ship will serve as an opportunity to extend the Milwaukee “brand” worldwide. The ship will be christened on December 18 in Marinette, Wis., where it is currently being built.
As a retired U.S. Navy Officer, Phil takes a special interest in pursuing Navy projects in Milwaukee; so it’s only natural that he would take on the role of public affairs team leader for the ship’s commissioning committee.
Phil and fellow USS Milwaukee commissioning committee members.
As a part of his public relations responsibilities, Phil and the rest of the VA Team are currently helping produce a video that will be shown after the ship’s christening to build support. To create the video, we are collaborating with Fincantieri, the largest shipbuilding company in Europe based in Trieste, Italy. We are excited to see this project take shape, as well as participate in this historic event for the Milwaukee community.
