Sub base reflects on its 150-year history
12 Apr 2018
For its first 50 years, the New London Navy Yard in Groton was not of particular importance.
Today, the site is home to the Naval Submarine Base, where 15 of the Navy's 52 attack submarines are based, and holds much more prominence.
The Navy's push to build more attack submarines coupled with the changing role of the submarine have enhanced the strategic value of the base, officials say.
