Jefferson City27kOn the 17th of October 2000, the Navy Submarine Base San Diego was host to one of the Navy's most unique evolutions. Arco (ARDM-5) successfully docked Jefferson City (SSN-759). This was the first time Arco has seen a submarine in over 15 months.
An extraordinary amount of time and work went into the planning of this evolution by the sailors of Arco. The hundreds of hours put into preparing for such a large evolution was the sole reason the docking was conducted without complication. The Jefferson City is scheduled to be in Dry Dock for two months while it undergoes several upgrades.
