Carter Commissioning Wrap-Up

Here's the article on the Carter commissioning that I've been waiting for, from Robert Hamilton of The New London Day. He even quotes one of the initial manning nukes who's still there:

Machinist Mate 1st Class Robert Perry said he served on the USS Pasadena, a Los Angeles-class submarine, before he was picked for the Jimmy Carter.
“This is way more exciting — one of a kind, a class of one, the greatest technological achievement in the world,” Perry said. “It doesn't get any better than that. It's a great feeling.”

Staying at PD...

Update 1040 20 Feb: Some pictures associated with the commissioning on the Navy Newstand can be found here, here, here, here, and here. The Hartford Courant also has a story on the commissioning with a photo.
