History will be made in South Mississippi this week. The USS Mississippi, a 377 foot long attack submarine, will be commissioned in Pascagoula Saturday. Thousands of coast residents will have the chance to witness the actual commissioning.
While the coast is acquainted with destroyers and yachts, it is a rare sight to have a submarine come into one of our harbors. We all should be proud that our state name will travel the world protecting the interests of our country.
This newest sub even impresses Rear Admiral Rick Breckenridge who is responsible for the submarine once it is commissioned. The admiral says the sub has many WOW factors including the most sophisticated technology of any submarine this country has ever built. He calls it the pre-eminent warship in the Navy's arsenal.
This week USS Mississippi crew members are having a chance to be a part of our community, participating in events like building a habitat home.
This is the fifth ship named after our great state and it will be in service for the next thirty years. This is a proud moment for wherever the USS Mississippi goes, it is there to protect not only the residents of our state, but also, the entire nation.
