USS Freedom LCS-1 Port Call Buffalo


For 2 days the USS Freedom made a port call at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park and provided thousands of citizens the opportunity to see the US Navy’s newest class of warship. Very few Navy ships are built in fresh water ship yards, but the Freedom was in completed in Wisconsin and is on its way to the Navy Base in Norfolk, VA. After sea trials the ship will call San Diego its home port. The crew wanted to visit the Anchor Bar, the VA Hospital and the Buffalo Bills players donated tickets for the Monday night football game.

Thanks to the US Navy for providing Buffalo and Erie County this rare chance to see a brand new warship.
