USS Pasadena Stops at Fleet Activities Yokosuka
The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Pasadena (SSN 752) arrived at Fleet Activities Yokosuka Feb. 26 for a visit as part of its Western Pacific deployment.
Pasadena’s crew of 150 will conduct a multitude of missions and showcase the latest capabilities of the submarine fleet. Pasadena’s participation in exercises with various foreign navies from around the Pacific Rim will aid in solidifying the U.S. role in international maritime operations.
Commissioned in July, 1991, and currently homeported in San Diego, Pasadena is the U.S. Navy’s second “improved” 688-class nuclear-powered submarine. Throughout its 24-year history, Pasadena has deployed to and conducted operations in virtually every part of the world.
