USS Drum to Vallejo as Museum Boat?
This article from the Vallejo Times Herald says that a local group is working to raise funds to get the decommissioned submarine USS Drum (SSN-677) transferred back to Mare Island, where it was the last submarine built there, as a museum piece. One item caught my attention:
"With the Drum, Vallejo would be unique since no other city would be able to boast possession of a nuclear-powered submarine, Stephens said. Interest among military buffs, school children, former Mare Island workers, and others would be high."
This will probably surprise the city of Newport, Kentucky, which is much closer to having the ex-USS Narwhal (SSN-671) on display.
As a side note, I think Drum had the best submarine motto of all time: "Unbeatable".
