Silent Service Speaks

The secret is out. The US Navy is lifting the cloak hanging over its fleet of submarines as part of its “Submarine Centennial,” which features a year-long series of ceremonies, open houses and exhibitions.

The centerpiece is an exhibition at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. Called “Fast Attacks and Boomers: Submarines in the Cold War,” the exhibition examines the history and lore of the submarine fleet from 1945 to 1991. The Navy is also sponsoring smaller exhibitions across the county. A full list of events is posted at
