America’s Shipyard – Episode Six
PORTSMOUTH, VA, UNITED STATES
Welcome to America’s Shipyard, a series dedicated to highlighting the amazing employees getting the work done at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) – ONE TEAM supporting ONE MISSION! In this sixth episode, Capt. Dianna Wolfson surprised the project team of the recently departed USS San Francisco. San Francisco completed its moored training ship conversion work at NNSY and was towed to Charleston, South Carolina Aug. 16 where our Nuclear Power Training Unit (NPTU) Charleston team will complete the remaining work to allow her to serve as a modern training platform for Sailors.
This massive project took years to plan and complete and required separating the hull into three sections, removing and recycling the center of the hull, and adding three new ones to construct the training platform.
Along with converting La Jolla, this job was the closest America’s Shipyard had come to new ship construction in about 65 years, and one of the biggest submarine projects in the shipyard’s 120 years of servicing submarines.
It took hundreds of workers and ship’s force to convert the vessel, completing so many milestones along the way in contributing to our ability to deliver it NPTU to complete the project. These teammates saw to delivering the vessel to serve its new mission as a training platform, working as ONE TEAM while delivering on ONE MISSION to repair, modernize, and inactivate our Navy’s warships and training platforms. Bravo Zulu to all involved!

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
