John Holland sold the 64-ton submersible Holland VI to the Navy, marking the beginning of our submarine force. Several months later, the submarine was commissioned as USS Holland (SS 1).
The world’s first submarine used in warfare, the 8-foot-long Turtle debuted during the American Revolution. With an oak made, walnut-shell-shaped casing, it bobbed just below the water’s surface. The one-person craft was paddled using a hand crank. It’s objective was to attach an explosive to the hull of an enemy ship and get away before the explosion. In its one combat use, it failed to successfully attach the explosive, however it gave the Royal Navy enough of a scare that they moved their ships to safer distance from American Forces.
Today’s Navy submarines are 100 percent nuclear powered – patrolling the depths of our oceans, taking the fight to our enemies and providing maritime security around the world. Our submarine force includes approximately 28,000 officers, enlisted Sailors, civilians and Reservists. In 2011,female officers began serving aboard U.S. submarines. On June 22, 2015, the Navy announced the selections of the first enlisted female submariners, marking a key milestone in the continued integration of women into the Submarine Force.
SILENT SERVICE BLEND is a blend of medium Panama giving it a deeper, robust flavor and light Costa Rica giving it a silent powerful burst of flavor. Great for any Bubblehead standing the watch, or that civilian wanting to taste that deep water Navy flavor!
