Submarine ends Guam deployment, moves to Hawaii

SEND-OFF: A U.S. Naval Base Guam tug boat sprays water as a send-off for the Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Topeka while the sub transits Apra Harbor on its final day forward-deployed to Guam last month. USS Topeka will officially shift its homeport from Guam to Hawaii. A replacement for Topeka on Guam has yet to be announced. Three other submarines are based on Guam as part of Submarine Squadron 15: USS Asheville; USS Oklahoma City; and USS Key West. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd class Kelsey J.
