US Navy Decommissions USS Miami after Almost 24 Years of Service

Rolf Spelker to Submarine Group 2 commander Rear Adm. Ken Perry, marking the end of the ship’s nearly 24-year journey.“Every once in a while a ship earns a waterfront reputation as a ‘hot boat.’ Miami earned that reputation early and kept it going,” said Perry, the guest speaker. “Miami’s journey has been unprecedented and unique, and today we show our gratitude and pride.”Miami was commissioned June 30, 1990 as the Navy’s 44th Los Angeles-class submarine and the fifth ship of the “improved” 688-class. She was built with an improved sonar and weapon control system, 12 vertical launch system tubes, and full under-ice capability – embodying the most modern design and construction of her time.During more than a dozen deployments over the past two decades, Miami fully employed her capabilities while operating in maritime regions near North America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.Miami was America’s first nuclear-powered submarine to transit the Suez Canal during her second deployment in 1994.Miami’s first commanding officer, retired Capt. Thomas Mader, delivered the keynote address.“As leaders, I believe we are judged for our response to the challenges we face, and our legacy is found in the state of readiness of the crew we leave behind,” said Mader. He also pointed out that many in Miami’s plankowner wardroom went on to assume submarine command. Eight members achieved the rank of captain and two became flag officers.Spelker later highlighted contributions by the ship’s 11 commanding officers and hundreds of crewmen who operated Miami over the years.“Miami redefined the possibilities of submarine warfare,” said Spelker. Miami is currently undergoing an inactivation process the Navy announced last fall. Her crew of 111 officers and enlisted personnel will all be reassigned to other units by December.Sixty-two Los Angeles-class attack submarines were constructed from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s. Forty-one are presently in active service.

U.S. Navy, Coast Guard Seize USD 107 Million Worth of Cocaine

first_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy Authorities View post tag: americas Working with the Colombian Navy and Air Force, U.S. Navy and Coast Guard forces aboard USS Ingraham (FFG 61) captured a semi-submersible vessel packed with $107 million worth of cocaine in the Eastern Pacific in May. View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Cocaine Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today U.S. Navy, Coast Guard Seize USD 107 Million Worth of Cocaine June 12, 2014 The seizure of such a vessel – classified as a Self-Propelled Semi-Submersible – is a significant feat for U.S. and multinational forces that conduct year-round counter illicit trafficking operations in the waters off Latin America and the Caribbean.When the semi-submersible was tracked by Ingraham and visually located by its SH-60B Seahawk helicopter and rigid-hulled inflatable boat, the suspected traffickers punctured their hull in an attempt to scuttle the craft.A U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment from Ingraham boarded the semi-submersible, detained the crew and gained control of the sinking vessel. Ingraham then quickly arrived on the scene and brought the semi-submersible alongside the ship. As the Colombian navy worked to tow the vessel into port, Sailors from Ingraham worked to pump water out of the slowly sinking semi-submersible and kept the vessel afloat long enough to retrieve the contraband loaded inside.The Coast Guard said the semi-submersible was transporting about 2,380 kilograms of cocaine worth $107 million. Three suspects who crewed the semi-submersible were taken into custody.The semi-submersible and cocaine seizure was part of Operation Martillo, a multinational effort targeting illicit traffickers and the movement of narcotics, precursor chemicals, bulk cash, and weapons in Central American waters.Units involved from Ingraham include Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light 49 and a U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment. Ingraham is homeported in Everett, Washington.[mappress]Press Release, June 12, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: worth View post tag: U.S. Navy View post tag: USD U.S. Navy, Coast Guard Seize USD 107 Million Worth of Cocaine View post tag: million View post tag: $107 View post tag: Coast Guard View post tag: USS Ingraham View post tag: Seize View post tag: Martillolast_img read more

US sailors arrive in Antarctica for operation Deep Freeze

With the significant time change — 18 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time — coupled with 24 hours of daylight create challenges for acclimatization.Sailors have been acclimating to the weather and harsh environmental conditions with physical training and team-building activities, allowing them to settle into a routine and prepare for the start of cargo operations.One event included a climate acclimatization team hike, in which sailors trekked over three miles on the Ridge Line trail overlooking the McMurdo Sound. Along the way, they stopped at memorial markers commemorating the lives of shipmates who lost their lives while working here in 1956 and 1982, in the promotion of scientific endeavors in the last frontier.With shipboard operations starting in a few days, NCHB 1 sailors have been busy performing driver training, cargo accountability training, and lending assistance to the camp where needed.Additionally, sailors have leveraged opportunities to listen to NSF’s Albert P. Crary Science and Engineering Center lectures, which cover a broad range of scientific research initiatives here.McMurdo’s open house program also provided Sailors the opportunity to visit and tour NASA’s Ground Control Station and radome, which is a critical component for receiving and disseminating orbital satellite data.last_img read more
