The Virginia-class attack submarine USS John Warner (SSN 785) was commissioned during a ceremony attended by more than 2,500 in its future homeport of Naval Station Norfolk, Aug. 1, 2015. Proudly displaying its motto "On a Mission to Defend Freedom," the ship is the 12th Virginia-class attack submarine to join the Navy's operating fleet.

Aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) completed its first weapons onload in more than five years, since beginning Refuel and Complex Overhaul (RCOH) in September 2009, as it took on more than 1,600 tons of ordnance, May 5-6. The massive onload was also the first onload for 85 percent of the ship’s aviation ordnancemen.
