USS Santa Fe Concludes Six-Month Mission

The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Santa Fe (SSN 763) returned to Pearl Harbor Oct. 28, fulfilling a regularly-scheduled six-month deployment to the Western Pacific.

The deployment was Santa Fe’s second in three years to the Western Pacific, and included port visits to Japan, Guam and Singapore.

While deployed, 30 Sailors and three officers earned their designation as qualified in submarines and now wear their dolphin warfare insignia.

Measuring more than 360 feet long and weighing more than 6,000 tons when submerged, Santa Fe is one of the stealthiest submarines in the world.
