The USS Connecticut (SSN-22) left the dock at Naval Magazine Indian Island on Friday and cruises past the Hudson Point Marina before heading south towards the sub base at Bangor. The USS Connecticut, a Seawolf-class submarine, was the fifth ship of the United States Navy to be named for the fifth state. In early 2007, it was announced that the Connecticut would be transferred to Naval Base Kitsap in Washington following a six-month deployment encompassing the latter half of the year. The other two Seawolf-class submarines in the U.S. Navy are also located at Kitsap, and the move was announced as part of a larger U.S. Navy redeployment plan that involves 60 percent of the fleet's submarines to the Pacific. Upon arrival at Kitsap, the Connecticut will be assigned to Submarine Development Squadron Five..22)
