Parche Decommissioned

It seems ridiculous, but except for an article in The New Londay Day (which requires a free registration to see articles more than two days old), I can't find anything on the 'Net talking about the decommissioning of the last Sturgeon class submarine, USS Parche (SSN 683). This happened on Tuesday (see third article down in link) and marks the end of an era. I won't discuss that much about all the alleged exploits of the Parche, other than to say that the men who went to sea in her will always have my respect.

Update: Here's a more permanent link.
