NYC Fleet Week: USS Wasp (LHD1)

Sponsored by the Veterans Alum Network

Batten down the hatches, because Fleet Week is back in NYC! Join fellow Hopkins alums and friends for a rare opportunity to tour the USS Wasp (LHD 1) during NYC's Fleet Week 2023. The USS Wasp is a United States Navy multipurpose amphibious assault ship, and the lead ship of her class. She is the tenth USN vessel to bear the name since 1775, with the last two ships named Wasp being aircraft carriers.

The morning tour will begin promptly at 11:00 am. Once the tour is complete, participants are welcome to enjoy the rest of their day and Memorial Day Weekend in New York City. 

Please report to the VIP/Tour Entrance at 48th Street and 12th Avenue to meet the group for the tour. 

Please note the following important tour information:

  • Photo identification is required for entrance
