Apr 27: USS Bremerton (SSN 698) Will Arrive in Bremerton for Decommissioning

BREMERTON, Wash. (April 17, 2018) The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Bremerton (SSN 698) will arrive at Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton to commence the inactivation and decommissioning process, April 27.

Bremerton is currently the oldest active duty submarine. Under the command of Cmdr. Travis Zettel, Bremerton will be departing Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii for a homeport change to its namesake city. Bremerton has been homeported in Hawaii since 2003.

Bremerton completed their most recent deployment April 6, 2018. During the six-month deployment, the boat and her crew steamed more than 42,000 nautical miles and conducted five foreign port visits.

The submarine’s ability to support a multitude of missions, including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, strike warfare, surveillance and reconnaissance, made Bremerton one of the most capable submarines in the world.

During the inactivation process, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility will de-fuel the submarine and then retain the hull in safe storage until the boat is recycled.
