Submarine USS Greenville Leaves Pearl-Harbor

first_imgGreeneville’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Martin Muckian, said the submarine and her crew are excited to get underway. “We had a very successful and rewarding deployment in 2012,” said Muckian. “That makes our experienced Sailors eager to go out there and deploy again. I think our new Sailors are excited to experience their first deployment and see the world, which is one of the reasons many of them, including myself, joined the Navy in the first place.”Muckian said Greeneville will be working with 7th Fleet in support of national security objectives, as well as fostering closer ties with allies in the region while on their six-month deployment to the Pacific region. Greeneville’s goal is to support the operational commander and accomplish the mission, whether that is conducting at-sea operations or in port showing the flag. Muckian said deployment is a great seasoning experience for the crew and they plan to use every opportunity to advance the qualifications and experience level of the Sailors. “The new Sailors on this deployment are going to be the ‘old salts’ for the next deployment and it is important we give them as much responsibility and experience as they can handle,” said Muckian.Muckian added that the crew will also have the opportunity to experience enjoyable times at sea and exciting foreign ports of call.Greeneville recently won the Battle Efficiency Award, or Battle “E”, for sustaining superior performance in an operational environment within a command. Humbled at the accomplishment, Muckian hopes the strong performance of Greeneville’s crew that showed all year long in 2013 will have laid the foundation for a great performance on this deployment. But at the same time, Muckian says he does not want the crew to be complacent and forget how challenging deployment can be.“I have told the crew that you should be justifiably proud of what you have accomplished and enjoy the moment, but don’t rest on your laurels,” maintained Muckian. “Deployment is a very challenging time and we need to be our own worst critics if we are to keep sharp and stay ahead of those challenges.”Greeneville deploys with 140 Sailors, many of them on their first deployment.For Electronics Technician 3rd Class Gabriel Coronado, a first-time deployment brings feelings of anticipation and expectation.“I expect little to no sleep,” said Coronado. “I’ll probably have some personal growth. I want to be reactor operator qualified and submarine qualified before we return.”Despite the challenges that await the crew of Greeneville, Muckian said he is amazed at the work the Sailors do and that success is due to the result of the whole crew doing it right, day in and day out. “I am honored to lead this crew out on deployment a second time,” said Muckian.Greeneville is the 61st Los Angeles-class submarine and the 22nd improved Los Angeles-class attack submarine. Commissioned in 1996, Greeneville is the first ship to be named after the small town in eastern Tennessee. Los Angeles-class submarines are ideally suited for covert surveillance, intelligence gathering and special forces missions. This stealth, when combined with the submarine’s Tomahawk cruise missiles, mines and torpedoes, provide the operational commander with an unseen force multiplier.[mappress]Press Release, February 19, 2014; Image: US Navy February 19, 2014 Training & Education View post tag: Pearl-Harbor View post tag: Naval USS GREENVILLE (SSN-772)Family and friends said their farewells to the crew of the Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Greeneville (SSN 772) as she departed Joint Base Pearl-Harbor Hickam for a deployment to the Western Pacific region, Feb. 15.

Royal Navy frigate visits world’s remotest island

first_img January 19, 2017 Authorities View post tag: HMS Portland Royal Navy frigate visits world’s remotest island Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy frigate visits world’s remotest island center_img Photo: Royal NavyDays after setting sail from South Georgia, Royal Navy frigate HMS Portland reached what is officially known as the most remote populated island on the planet.The South Atlantic island is called Tristan da Cunha and houses the 6,765ft volcano Queen Mary’s Peak.At 38 square miles, the size of Coventry but with a population of just 265, the island rises out of the South Atlantic 1,200 miles from the nearest inhabited land: Saint Helena, another distant British territory.South Africa lies 1,500 miles to the east and South America 2,200 miles to the west. There’s no airport, just a small harbour (too small for HMS Portland, but not her boats).The islanders, almost all concentrated in the ‘capital’, Edinburgh of the Seven Seas, are British citizens, drive on the left-hand side of the few roads and spend the pound in shops.HMS Portland carried out a fishery protection patrol of Tristan’s waters – the sea is rich with crawfish, one of the island’s main sources of income – before dropping anchor for 24 hours in company with tanker RFA Gold Rover.Keen to dust of their clubs after the passage from South Georgia were Portland’s golfers who fancied a crack at the world’s most isolated – and challenging – links course.Able Seaman ‘Smudge’ Smith broke the course record with a below-par round of just 34 (over nine holes).“It’s a really tough course but great fun; I’ve never played on a volcano before I was on good form today and I am really proud to have broken the Tristan course record,” he said.The rest of the ship’s company used their time to explore Tristan. One group was led on a hike to the summit of Queen Mary’s Peak, the volcano which dominates the island.Back in 1961 the volcano, less than a mile away from the main settlement, erupted and the Royal Navy was called into evacuate the islanders.Portland weighed anchor late in the evening to continue her South Atlantic patrol. She’s now slowly edging her way northwards ahead of a return to Plymouth in the spring. View post tag: Royal Navy Share this articlelast_img read more

US Navy, CS Simpson (SS 21) hone submarine rescue skills

After the module’s transfer skirt was dewatered, Captain Chris Cavanaugh, Commander, Submarine Squadron 11, and CS Simpson’s commander Cmdr. Federico Karl Saelzer Concha, among others, climbed from the hatch of the submarine up to the pressurized rescue module.The transfer skirt hatch of the pressurized rescue module (PRM) of Undersea Rescue Command (URC) opens after mating with CS Simpson (SS 21). Photo: US Navy View post tag: CS Simpson US Navy, CS Simpson (SS 21) hone submarine rescue skills during CHILEMAR CHILEMAR VIII is a bilateral exercise designed to demonstrate interoperability between the US submarine rescue systems and Chilean submarines.The exercise is part of a wider Diesel-Electric Submarine Initiative (DESI) program under which Commander, Submarine Squadron 11 (CSS-11), is hosting CS Simpson and its crew in San Diego for a period of three months.DESI was established by US Fleet Forces Command in 2001 with the aim of enhancing the US Navy’s capability to operate with diesel-electric submarines by partnering with South American navies.“Each year, Submarine Squadron 11 has the privilege of hosting a South American submarine in our local waters,” said Lt. Alexander Papadakos, the CSS-11 liaison officer for Simpson. “During these visits, we are able to simulate a variety of wartime scenarios against diesel submarines which adds an additional degree of difficulty and reality to fleet ASW, as diesel submarines have proven to be quiet and elusive.”CS Simpson arrived at Naval Base Point Loma on June 26.
