USS Newport News Returns Home

USS Newport News (SSN 750) returned home from the Arabian Gulf yesterday after her January collision with a Japanese tanker. The Navy Times story on her return indicates that she "transited home submerged but not in an operational capacity". It also says that she's going to be doing the grand tour of East Coast shipyards, going to Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for an assessment and then Newport News Shipyard for repairs. I guess Norfolk Naval Shipyard must be full.

NNSY is more than full. All of the big players, EB, NGNN, PNSY, and NNSY, have been playing musical LMA's lately.

What's an "LMA"? Is it a Little Maintenance Activity, a Logistics Maintenance Activity, a Lime Mango Apple?
