USS Providence Gets Around
The Norwich Bulletin is reporting that USS Providence (SSN 719) is returning home to Groton today at the conclusion of a far-flung deployment:
Providence participated in a US-Indian Sea Exercise Malabar 06, off the Indian coast of Goa, where the missions helped to strengthen ties between the Canadian, Indian and American forces.I'm thinking that if you went all the way from Groton to Japan and India, you might as well just go ahead and make it an "around the world" deployment; I wonder if that's what they did.
While deployed, Providence also took part in a Japanese Maritime Self defense Force submarine competition that included other Pacific Command Area of Responsibility allies.
Welcome home, guys.
