Richard Fife of the USS Idaho Commissioning Committee will discuss the new fast attack nuclear submarine, USS Idaho, currently under construction and scheduled for commissioning in 2023. The USS Idaho (SSN-799), a Virginia-class submarine, will be the fifth U.S. Navy vessel named for the state of Idaho. Fife will share the history of these ships named for our state, as well as Idaho’s rich Naval history that spans from Camp Farragut in Northern Idaho to Naval Reactors Facility at the Idaho National Lab. This program will air on livestream.com/comlib and will be archived for later on-demand viewing.
