Our mission as a Submarine club is to hold events that are both fun and informative. We offer submarine tours and the chance to speak with real submariners. Our events look to emphasize the advanced technology of our submarines and express the great responsibility and excitement of being a submarine officer. This year we featured the classic film: Das Boot, toured an SSGN, toured an SSN, visited the Maritime Museum and ended with the exciting Submarine Birthday Ball.
· Das Boot: movie and pizza night featuring the awarding-winning film credited with accurately portraying submarine life in WWII.
· SSGN: versatile platform converted from a vessel capable of launching nuclear weapons to one that can hold a variety of conventional strike packages and Spec-War transport systems.
· SSN: The famous fast attack vessel responsible for the main workforce of our undersea Navy and deployment cycles that allow more frequent port visits.
· Maritime Museum: a step into the past through the cramped quarters of the B-39 Soviet Era Submarine and the US Navy's last diesel-electric submarine
· Submarine Birthday Ball: The celebration of the 114thbirthday of our submarine force.
This upcoming semester look for more tours, more museum visits and events focused on submarine history. Discover how the advanced and ever-expanding submarine force can broaden your career horizons with the Navy.
