Oct 11: Luncheon Speaker Rdml John W Tammen Commander Submarine Group 9


Come out and help us celebrate the 241st Navy Birthday! The United States Navy was originally established as the Continental navy on October 13,  1775, when the Continental Congress authorized the procurement, fitting out, manning, and dispatch of two armed vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America.

Our Guest Speaker will be Rear Admiral John W. Tammen, Commander Submarine Group 9. The Group Commander provides oversight for shipboard training, personnel, supply and material readiness of SSBNs and their crews. The Group Commander is also responsible for nuclear submarines undergoing conversion or overhaul at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton. As Commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet Representative, COMSUBGRU NINE coordinates all submarine matters in the Pacific Northwest.

Rdml Tammen comes to us from US Strategic Command where he served as Deputy Director of Plans and Policy. This is his third tour in the area. He has previously served as the Engineer Officer onboard USS Nevada, and as Commodore Submarine Squadron 19. Rdml Tammen Bio
