The Navy League is sponsoring the arrival reception for the USS Hawaii (SSN 776) to Pearl Harbor in late July for its official Home porting. Commissioned in May 5, 2007, Hawaii was the third Virginia class attack submarine constructed and the first submarine to be named after the island state. Her crew is excited to represent its namesake state, as they continue to build upon our already sustained relationships with our multi-national partners in the Asia-Pacific Region.
The Navy League will be holding a reception for the crew and their families, sponsored in part, by Oceanic Time Warner Cable and other great companies. Navy League executive Director Bob McDermott said, "Without community partners like Oceanic Cable, we would not be able to welcome and host these braver service members in a proper fashion. I am consistently amazed at how Oceanic seems to step up to the plate and support our military and community at large."
USS Hawaii Measuring 377 feet long, weighing 7,800 tons when submerged and with a complement of more than 130 crewmembers, is one of the Navy's newest and most technologically sophisticated submarines. It is a state-of-the-art submarine capable of supporting a multitude of missions including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, strike, naval special warfare involving special operations forces, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, strike group support, and mine warfare. She will join the force of fifteen Los Angeles-class submarines presently home ported in Pearl Harbor.
