USS Ohio Visits Yokosuka
USS Ohio (SSGN 726) pulled into Yokosuka yesterday for a port visit, just over a year after she left Bangor on her maiden SSGN deployment. Here's a picture of her piloting into Yoko:
Anyone know if the officer Sanctuary is still open at the base?
Earlier this month, the crew of USS Ohio did a burial at sea in the Philippine Sea (here and here). Here's some more information on the Dry Deck Shelters you see aft of her sail, and Galrahn had some comments on her capabilities when she deployed last year.
Based on the fact that the Ohio is quite a ways from the Arabian Sea, it looks like we won't be attacking Iran before the election. I know all the conspiracy theorists out there will be bummed...
