USS Alabama submarine crew sends message to Tide fans
I'm a Gator and longing for a USS Florida to do a "Go Gator". In the meantime, here's what the USS Alabama is up to:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The crew of the USS Alabama submarine recently sent a video message to Crimson Tide fans.
"Just like the Crimson Tide, our awesome offensive and defensive capabilities have made us the best in the world," a crew member says in the video.
The submarine is based in Bangor, Washington but is named for the state of Alabama. The USS Alabama is the sixth Ohio-class nuclear-powered fleet ballistic missile submarine.
Watch the video and enjoy:
My blog concentrates on submarine history and modern strategy. I plan to sprinkle in commentary on anything of interest. My publisher is the U.S. Naval Institute Press. Information about my books is available at USNI.com. I also have an interest in Bucks County, Pa. history and write a weekly column for the Bucks County Courier Times and The Intelligencer. My new book on the subject is "Bucks County Adventures" available through Amazon.com.
