Links to Describe Submarines and What They Do

What submarines do: a good description of Undersea Warfare is in a magazine published by CNO N87, who has a home page here.

The Navy Fact File description of SSN's (page down a few times and look for the Benjamin Franklin class)

Our homeport, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

Our parent squadron, Submarine Squadron ONE.

Our type commander, COMSUBPAC.

The ship often deploys for her missions with SEALs and Navy Divers.

The mighty Kam is the best equipped ship in the world to covertly insert special operations forces in hostile territory. Like all submarines, she's a trump card; a submarine can sit off of a coast for as long as needed, undetected, waiting to act or leave without raising tensions in the meantime.
