GROTON, Conn. (AP) — One of the Navy’s oldest attack submarines is returning to its Connecticut homeport after a deployment to the Middle East.
The USS Dallas traveled more than 42,000 miles on a tour that included port stops in Oman, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Scotland and France.
The Los Angeles-class submarine is expected back at Naval Submarine Base New London on Tuesday.
The submarine was commissioned in July 1981. The vessel is 362 feet long and has a crew of roughly 15 officers and 117 enlisted Sailors.
