The U.S. Navy commissioned USS Vermont (SSN 792), the 19th Virginia-class attack submarine on April 18, 2020.
The traditional public commissioning ceremony was canceled due to current situation, the U.S Navy commissioned USS Vermont administratively and transitioned the ship to normal operations.
Acting Secretary of the Navy James E. McPherson said,
“This Virginia-class fast-attack submarine will continue the proud naval legacy of the state of Vermont and the ships that have borne her name.I am confident the crew of this cutting edge platform will carry on this tradition and confront the challenges of today’s complex world with the professionalism and dedication our nation depends on from warriors of the silent service.”
Vice Adm. Daryl Caudle, commander, Submarine Forces, said Vermont’s entry to service marks a new phase of American undersea warfare dominance for a global Submarine Force that is ready to deter, defend and defeat threats to our nation, allies, and rules-based international order.
