KEYPORT, Washington — While every ship and
submarine is special to the Sailors who served aboard,
some vessels are truly one of a kind. Puget Sound Naval
Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility partnered
with the U.S. Naval Undersea Museum to preserve part of
one such historic vessel.
Capt. Howard Markle, commander of PSNS & IMF,
and Museum Director Lindy Dosher officially transferred
ownership of the control room from the experimental
nuclear research submarine NR-1 from the shipyard to the
museum during a ceremony in the museum’s private
storage
