USS Jefferson City, one of six Los Angeles-class attack submarines homeported at Point Loma, has received the coveted Battle Efficiency, or “Battle E” award, from the Commander Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet.
The Navy says the Jefferson City, which typically sails with 12 officers and 98 men, won the award because the 361-foot boat had the most proficient crew in its squadron, and “sustained superior technical performance and continual combat readiness throughout (2012),” the Navy said in a statement.
Commander Submarine Force, US Pacific Fleet also announced these other Battle “E” winners and their homeports.
