Trident Submarines Transferring from Georgia

Here's an article from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that actually seems fairly accurate. Of the 18 Ohio-Class (commonly called "Trident") submarines, four are going to be converted to Tomahawk missile carrying boats. Since the four being converted (USS Ohio, USS Michigan, USS Georgia, and USS Florida) were all stationed at Naval Submarine Base Bangor, several of the remaining SSBNs (ballistic missile submarines) were going to have to move there from Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia, in order to even up the numbers.
