Welcome Aboard from the USS KANSAS CITY (LCS-22) Commissioning Committee
USS KANSAS CITY (LCS-22) is an Independence-class littoral combat ship of the United States Navy. She is the second ship to be named for Kansas City, the largest city in the U.S. state of Missouri.
The USS KANSAS CITY was built in Mobile, Alabama by Austal USA in conjunction with General Dynamics. The ship was christened on September 22nd, 2018 in Mobile, Alabama. She is sponsored by Tracy Davidson, wife of Admiral Philip S. Davidson. She was launched 19 October 2018 into the Mobile River.
Our mission, on behalf of and with the financial support of the community, is to provide the USS Kansas City with needed morale building and sustaining items the Navy does not provide, sponsor commissioning events which bring the ship to active life, establish a scholarship fund for the benefit of the crew and build the foundation for a long lasting relationship between the ship’s crew, Kansas City, and the greater metropolitan area.
