Happy Birthday, Submariners!

On 11 April 1900, the United States government paid $150,000 for a submarine named Holland VI, which would soon become known as USS HOLLAND (SS-1). Thus was born the nation’s submarine service. Exactly 86 years later, USS NAUTILUS was officially opened to the public as part of the Submarine Force Museum. We wish both the “First and Finest” and submariners past and present a very happy birthday!
