    • USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81) returned to Norfolk from a 7 month deplyment to the Middle East and European waters on Nov 4, 2018.  On Nov 26th, the ship went to Naval Weapons Station Yorktown to offload ammunitions.  On Jan 14, 2019, the ship moored at Marine Hydraulics Industries (MHI) shipyard in Norfolk for a Selected Restricted Availability (SRA) to make routine scheduled repairs and updates.  Completing the Availability, Churchill was underway for sea trials from July 19th to 21st, 2019.  On August 25th, Churchill moored at Naval Station Norfolk after being underway for 5 days in the Virginia Capes ops area.
    • USS Connecticut (SSN 22) deployed to the Western Pacific in July 2018, returning to the west coast in Jan 2019.  While deployed, the submarine visited Yokosuka, Japan in August and October, and Garden Island Western Australia in December.  Connecticut departed Bremerton homeport for routine ops on March 5, 2019 and later that month entered drydock.  Connecicut was awarded the coveted "Battle E" award in 2019 (congratulations!).  On August 8th, CDR Cameron Aljilani relieved CDR Carl Trask as Commanding Officer in a ceremony at the Naval Undersea Museum in Keyport Washington (see press release by clicking this link).
