USS Los Angeles Decommissioning


After 30 years of service, the Los Angeles Class fast attack submarine is still a mainstay of America's fast attack submarine fleet. In November 2009 the lead ship of the class, SSN-688 USS Los Angeles, was retired from the fleet. On January 23, 2010 the USS Los Angeles was decommissioned during a cerimony held in San Pedro, CA.

The ship will be broken up at the Peuget Sound Naval Ship Yard in Bremerton, Washington. At the time of her decommissioning, the USS Los Angeles was the oldest boat in the fleet.

We are pleased to offer this print to commemorate the service of "the First and The Finest". The scene shows the sub passing over the drop-off of the continental shelf and headed for deep water.
