Last week the Bremerton Olympic Peninsula were honored to host a namesake visit of five crew members from the Precommissioning crew of the USS Washington SSN-787 which is under construction at Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipyard in Newport News VA. They were making their first visit to Washington State on a familiarization tour.
