This is the last time the submarine will depart Pearl Harbor for a deployment as it is slated to move to Guam next summer where it will become an asset of Submarine Squadron FIFTEEN.

The submarine returned to its homeport of Pearl Harbor May 30 following a six-month deployment to the Western Pacific.
