USS HAWAII (SSN 776) returns home from deployment

At least, that’s what the Coast Guard said in awarding USS HAWAII a Coast Guard Meritorious Unit Commendation for Couner-drug operations:

The Virginia-class submarine USS Hawaii (SSN 776) became the second Naval submarine in history to receive the U.S. Coast Guard Meritorious Unit Commendation May 7 for its role in tracking drug runners and helping to keep illegal drugs off the nation’s street.

The Groton-based submarine earned the award for its part in counter-drug operations in the Eastern Pacific Ocean in support of Joint Interagency Task Force (JIATF) South from February 20 to April 17 last year.

BZ, guys!!
