Jul 10: Monthly Luncheon Speaker William Delaney Columbia Class Submarine Program

William “Jake” Delaney is our July speaker. In a significant departure from the June speaker, our Lt Governor, we have the Columbia Class Submarine (formerly known as the Ohio Replacement) Program Representative – Bangor. Mr Delaney is a retired Master Chief, now working for General Dynamics Electric Boat Corporation primarily factoring in Trident Class Maintenance experience into Columbia Class SSBN planning.

The Columbia-class submarine is being designed to replace the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines, that will be decommissioned, one per year, beginning in 2027. The Columbia-class will incrementally take over the role of submarine presence in the United States’ strategic nuclear force.

Our social hour will begin at 11AM with the meeting starting at 11:45 in the Bangor Conference Center, Trident Ballroom, Naval Base Kitsap, Bangor.

For lunch registration, please call Realty Station at 360 377-5699 as soon as possible. Next Week’s Fourth of July holiday  necessitates that the access list be submitted on Monday July 2. 

  • For members without base access, processing can take some days. We will take that job on if you call.
  • When registering provide your name as it appears on your Driver’s License and date and city of birth.
  • Members without an Enhanced Washington Drivers license will need to be escorted onto the base.
