USS North Dakota
In July of 2008, Donald Winter, US Secretary of the Navy, honored North Dakota by naming a Virginia-Class Nuclear Submarine after our great state. The naming of a submarine took effort from not just around the state, but around the globe.
The Virginia-class nuclear Submarine (SSN 784) is being built in Connecticut by General Dynamics. It is the first in a new series of Virginia class submarines, which will implement new technologies making it more efficient and able to upgrade throughout its 30-year life.
North Dakotans (or North Dakotans at heart) will have the opportunity to join the USS North Dakota Committee to attend the boat’s commissioning on May 31st, 2014. March 15th is the cutoff to sign up for an invitation.
