As of February 14th all of USS NORTH DAKOTA’s Supermodules are welded together! This is great news as she is now in the in her form as a VIRGINIA Class submarine. I was really excited when I saw this photo as we are now one step closer to having our new boat christened, commissioned and serving on active duty in the United States Navy!
And I can just imagine how excited Commander Doug Gordon, NORTH DAKOTA’s Commanding Officer, and his crew were when they had their picture taken for the first time with their new boat!
It’s going to start moving fast and soon NORTH DAKOTA will join the Navy!
