Jimmy Carter Arrival Countdown
It appears that my old boat USS Jimmy Carter (SSN 23) will be arriving at her new home in Bangor this month:
"For security reasons, Navy officials cannot divulge the exact date the submarine will arrive, but it has been said that it is expected early- to mid-November.
“We’re planning to have about 300 people out to welcome (the Jimmy Carter) at the pier,” said Lt. Herlinda Rojas, Submarine Group 9 spokeswoman.
"A band from Bear Creek School in Redmond as well as a DJ from the Navy’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) are among the festivities planned for the sub’s arrival."
Can't wait for her to get home!
