    Groton — First lady Jill Biden's office announced Monday that she and Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro will travel here on Thursday to meet with families of the USS Delaware (SSN-791), the submarine she sponsored.

    Biden and Del Toro are scheduled to arrive at Groton–New London Airport at 4:30 p.m. At 5:15, they are scheduled to  meet with the families at a holiday gathering hosted by United Through Reading at the U.S. Submarine Veterans Club.
