The Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS San Juan returned to Connecticut Friday, May 16. San Juan’s crew of more than 140 Sailors departed Naval Submarine Base New London Oct. 15 to conduct maritime operations in the Middle East and Europe. The submarine visited ports in Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Portugal and Spain while deployed. Three newborns met their dads for the first time Friday. San Juan was commissioned in August 1988. The 25-year-old vessel is the third U.S. Navy ship named for Puerto Rico’s capital city.
