USS California's arrival marks celebration of 'Connecticut's Submarine Century'

Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of the first submarines to arrive at Naval Submarine Base, and Navy and local officials gathered Friday at one of the many piers where submarines dock at the base to commemorate that anniversary and kick off a yearlong celebration of submarines.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has designated October 2015 through October 2016 as "Connecticut's Submarine Century."
The USS California, a Virginia-class submarine back from a month-long operation, served as a symbolic re-enactment of the arrival of the first submarines to be homeported in Groton in 1915.
