Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay

leave a comment »

While on the ferry to Cumberland Island I passed the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base.  Ones imagination can run wild with what lies within this U.S. Military post.  The chain of events that led to the creation of this base goes back to 1975.  Thousands of acres were transformed to created the U.S. Atlantic Fleet‘s home port for the U.S. Navy Fleet Ballistic Missile Nuclear submarines as well as Trident Missile nuclear weapons.  The sub pictured is the USS Pennsylvania leaving the facility, obviously I wasn’t lucky enough to take those two photos.
