USS Annapolis Visits Namesake City

Thursday, September 07, 2006
The Los Angeles-class submarine USS Annapolis (SSN 760) visited its namesake city from Aug. 30 to Sept. 5. The crew of Annapolis hosted tours for both midshipmen and Naval Academy faculty and staff over the holiday weekend.

“We actually came to Annapolis for two reasons,” said Annapolis Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Dennis J. McKelvey, “one being to visit the city we were named for and the other to give midshipmen exposure. We wanted them to see what life is like in the submarine community and encourage them to join the sub force after graduation.” Four Annapolis officers, including McKelvey, are Naval Academy graduates.

While ashore, Annapolis Sailors participated in a variety of activities, including an Academy pep rally and football game. Representatives from the crew also attended a reception with the U.S. Naval Academy Dolphin Club, the academy’s society of midshipmen who intend to go into the submarine community. “The hospitality shown to us by the midshipmen, the academy, and the people of the city was amazing,” said Fire Control Technician 2nd Class (SS) Frank Cook, Deck Division leading petty officer. “It was a great port visit. It’s always nice to see such a warm welcome.”

USS Annapolis is homeported in Groton, Conn. Commissioned April 11, 1992, the submarine’s crew consists of 13 officers and 121 enlisted Sailors. source: Navnews By Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Apprentice Matthew A. Ebarb, U.S. Naval Academy Public Affairs
