Batten down the hatches, because Fleet Week is back in NYC! Join fellow Hopkins alumni and friends for a rare opportunity to tour the USS Bataan (LHD 5) during NYC's Fleet Week. The USS Bataan is a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship in the U.S. Navy. This ship is named for the Battle of Bataan in the Philippines, during World War II. 

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 pre-arranged tours desk in front of the gate for the tour.
