InSync Training, a leading provider of virtual training and development services, is proud to announce their attendance at the christening of the USS MASSACHUSETTS in Newport News. The event will take place on Saturday, May 6th, 2023, at 11:00am EST.
The christening ceremony marks an important milestone in the life of the submarine as it officially enters service with the United States Navy. The ceremony is an opportunity for friends and family of those who have served, or are currently serving, in the military to come together to honor the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country.
Newport News Shipbuilding invites the public to watch the live webcast of the christening of the submarine on Saturday May 6, 2023, at 11am ET. The live webcast will be available on HII’s Facebook and YouTube social media channels, as well as the event website: http://hii.com/SSN798.
"It is an honor to be attending the christening ceremony of USS MASSACHUSETTS alongside our Technical Director, Dr. Charles Dye, the Secretary and Government Liaison of the Commissioning Committee. At InSync Training, we strongly endorse the USS MASSACHUSETTS Commissioning Committee's mission to provide sustainable support to the crews and families of the Commonwealth’s namesake submarine. As a donor, we are proud to contribute to this important cause and to stand with other Massachusetts residents and friends of the USS MASSACHUSETTS. We are also excited to be in the company of such an accomplished sponsor, Ms. Sheryl Sandberg, who continues to inspire women and lead in the tech industry." - Jennifer Hofmann, Founder of InSync Training.
Upon commissioning, she will be the ninth ship of the name to the United States, representing a legacy of service going back to the earliest days of the Continental Navy. USS MASSACHUSETTS (SSN 798) is a Virginia class fast attack nuclear submarine capable of a variety of missions vital to national security, and following commissioning is planned to be homeported in Groton, CT.
During the christening ceremony there will be a traditional breaking of champagne against the bow by Ship Sponsor Ms. Sheryl Sandberg, founder of LeanIn.org which is dedicated to helping women achieve their ambitions and work to create an equal world, and former COO of Meta Technologies. This will be followed by a speech honoring those who have served or are currently serving in the military.
InSync Training is proud to be part of this historic event and looks forward to honoring our brave servicemen and women for their dedication and sacrifice for our country’s freedom.
