The Navy’s Oldest Attack Submarine Goes Out On Top After Circumnavigating The Globe

The U.S. Navy’s oldest active attack submarine, the Los Angeles class USS Olympia, returned to her homeport in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii for the last time yesterday after an impressive seven-month-long world tour. It’s certainly bittersweet, but it follows twilight years for the sub that featured a number of significant events, including notably being responsible for firing the first submarine-launched Harpoon anti-ship missile in years, and other public recognition of her nearly 35 years of service.
