USS Georgia Returns to Port Following 17-Month Deployment

The Ohio-class guided-missile submarine USS Georgia (SSGN 729) has returned to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay after being deployed for 17 months.

The U.S. Navy was kind enough to supply a photo of the submarine’s homecoming to Peach Pundit.

In an email, the USN said to Peach Pundit: “Currently, there are roughly 11,080 Sailors from Ga. serving in the U.S. Navy. Our office decided sharing these great Navy hometown stories about a year ago to let taxpayers know what their Navy does to protect America.”

    Since I have been so vocal recently on the offensive misuse of the military for offensives I didn’t think this post by Ed should go by without noting the value of the Kings Bay Naval Base’s assets, both human and the subs, to the national defense. Without the “boomers” we really don’t have MAD as a deterrent. Launch platforms that can go hide their deadly cargo where it will hopefully never be needed are probably not appreciated enough by the US public. These guys who go out on these long cruises are prime examples of the types that we do need on Col. Jessup’s (Jack Nicholson’s?) wall.
