For the delivery of IUSNS CITY OF BISMARCK to the Navy Second Officer Patricia Evenson was given the authorization by the Navy to accept the delivery of our ship. This honor given to her had special meaning as she is a 2010 graduate of Bismarck’s Century High School and a native of Bismarck. She graduated from the United States Merchant Academy in 2014 and is serving for six years in the merchant marine service. She is also a Lieutenant (Junior Grade) in the Navy Reserve. She is shown on the left.
