 Command Leadership 



Commander, Submarine Group Two
The U.S. Navy's submarine force has the world's most capable submarines, manned by the world's best trained and motivated submariners. During the political or military confrontation, any potential adversary must assume that United States Navy submarines are present and consider the consequences.
COMSUBGRU TWO exercises command of North Atlantic attack submarine forces administratively assigned as well as operational control of Atlantic submarine units and other forces when assigned.
Responsible for Submarine Squadrons Four, and Submarine Development Squadron Twelve in Groton as well as Submarine Squadrons Six in Norfolk, COMSUBGRU TWO also exercises responsibility for the training and certification of new construction and overhaul ships and crews at Electric Boat and Portsmouth Naval Shipyards.

The mission of COMSUBGRU TWO is to ensure assigned personnel, staffs and submarines achieve and maintain a level of training, personnel and material readiness necessary to carry out their assigned missions.  Provide focused personal and professional growth opportunities for our personnel.  Encourage, develop and share our innovative ideas and new concepts on how to most effectively and efficiently train, maintain and employ submarines now and in the future.
