Oklahoma's Fast-Attack Submarine Dead Ahead

Construction of Oklahoma’s new namesake, the stealthy Virginia-class fast-attack nuclear submarine, is underway. At the commissioning ceremony in 2027, she will join the Naval fleet and enter service as a United States Ship. The pivotal moment is when the Commanding Officer and crew formally come aboard and bring the boat to life.

 

This is a time-honored event in the life of every US Navy ship. Dignitaries, honored guests, and the public are invited to participate in this inspiring and patriotic ceremony.  

Your financial support will help bring Oklahoma (SSN 802) to life.  Mark Your calendar for the Commissioning Ceremony mid-2027. 

Plank owners are members of the crew when a ship is commissioned. The origin of the term suggests these men and women were around when the ship was being built and commissioned, and therefore could brag about “owning” one of the planks on the main deck of the boat (when the decks were made of wood).

At the commissioning ceremony, the boat becomes home to her crew and goes into operation. The initial crew, or plank owners, are responsible for turning a metal vessel into a living, fighting warship. We invite you to be part of Oklahoma’s history by helping fund this historic event. Get your bragging rights - become a plank owner today.
