USS George Bancroft @ King's Bay


On the 5th I mentioned the static display at Kings Bay Subase that was quite impressive. Through the miracle that is the Internet (I had to come to WV to get access!) I discovered it is the USS George Bancroft SSBN-643 surfacing just outside the gate. I found this picture at www.StMarysSubMuseum.com. I think old George is more impressive when viewed from across the street but this gives you the idea. One of my brothers spent a few years on a sub - not all at once but it might have felt that way - so I thought this was pretty cool.
