Base to observe Memorial Day with 21-gun salute

Naval Submarine Base New London will join other military installations in honoring the men and women who have died while serving in the armed forces in an event on base that is not open to the general public.

At noon today the Saluting Battery from Naval Submarine Support Facility's (NSSF) Weapons Department will commence a 21-gun salute honoring Memorial Day with its 40mm battery. The battery will fire a single round volley at one-minute intervals until the 21-gun tribute is completed.

The salute will take place at the NSSF Weapons compound on the base in Groton.
