Kittery, Maine — The USS California submarine, whose home port is Groton, is at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for maintenance.

The fast-attack sub and its crew of 115 enlisted personnel and 15 officers docked at the shipyard on Sunday.

The Portsmouth Herald reports the California is the eighth Virginia-class nuclear-powered submarine "built to excel in anti-submarine warfare" and other missions.

The California was commissioned on Oct. 29, 2011.

What are your feelings about the swap of Taliban detainees for Army Sgt. Bergdahl?
It was the right thing to do. No soldier should be left behind. Period.
I thought our policy was to not negotiate with terrorist groups.
I initially supported the swap, but as more details have become available, I am not so sure now.
Absolutely not worth it, especially if the reports are true that soldiers died looking for Sergeant Bergdahl after senior American military officials say he wandered off his base.
