Hey CC: The Navy's Oldest Attack Submarine Goes Out On Top

The U.S. Navy's oldest active attack submarine, the Los Angeles class USS Olympia, returned to her homeport in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii yesterday after an impressive seven-month-long world tour. The voyage, which saw the boat head west and circumnavigate the globe, was also her last. It's certainly bittersweet, but it follows twilight years for the submarine that featured a number of significant events, including being responsible for firing the first submarine-launched Harpoon anti-ship missile in many years, and other public recognition of her nearly 35 years of service.

Family and friends were at Pearl Harbor to meet Olympia when she arrived on Sept. 8, 2019. The Navy announced earlier this year that it would decommission her by June 2020, but reports say that she will leave active service before the year ends. After that, the Los Angeles class attack submarine will head for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, Washington, where workers will remove her nuclear reactor plant for disposal and scrap the rest of her hull.

They are saying the USS San Juan will be retiring in about 2 years.  I commissioned that boat.
  

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

I drove past the barracks i did Basic at recently.

It's a housing estate. And the trees are not spindly little saplings, either...
