USS Constitution is making history… again! This month, USS Constitution bids a fond farewell to CDR John A. Benda and warmly welcomes CDR Billie June (BJ) Farrell, the first woman to take command of “Old Ironsides.”
On Wednesday, January 19 at 1PM ET, join the Museum for Captains of Constitution: Hail + Farewell, when we will celebrate these two historic commanding officers in a free, public virtual event. This is your opportunity to hear directly from CDR Benda and CDR Farrell before the change of command: what does it mean to be captain of America’s Ship of State?, what are the plans for the future of the Ship?, and whose home state has the better signature dish? Register today for what is sure to be a lively and can't-miss conversation.
This event is part of the Salute to Service initiative of the USS Constitution Museum, made possible thanks to the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
