USS Providence Gets Their Burke On

USS Providence (SSN 719) was formally presented with her Arleigh Burke trophy for 2007 in a ceremony yesterday by LantFleet Commander ADM Jonathan Greenert. What makes the Burke award special this year is that submarines won the award for both fleets -- USS Key West (SSN 722) won for PacFleet. Having submarines be named as "most improved" ship or squadron for both fleets is a good thing, I suppose... although I also suppose that they had to be not so good at one point to have a point to improve from. In any event, BZ to the officers and crew of both ships!

Who knows, maybe the Hampton has a chance to win it next year!

Hey Bubblehead,

Do you know of an internet resource where I could look at lists of officers I served with back in the 70 to see if any of them reached the command level or higher?
