Reminder of how size matters: USS New Hampshire at its commissioning in 2008 at Portsmouth (Me.) Naval Shipyard

KITTERY, Maine (Oct. 25, 2008) Crewmembers of the Virginia-class attack submarine USS New Hampshire (SSN 778) line the boat during the commissioning ceremony at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. More than 3,500 people were in attendance at the ceremony, held at the Navy's first shipyard. New Hampshire is the fifth Virginia-class submarine, the first major U.S. Navy combatant vessel class designed with the post-Cold War security environment in mind.
