VIRTUAL - Get to know the USS Idaho Online
Richard Fife of the USS Idaho Commissioning Committee will discuss the new nuclear submarine, USS Idaho, currently under construction and scheduled for commissioning in 2023.
The fast attack nuclear submarine will be the fifth U.S. ship in history to be called the USS Idaho. The last time a ship was commissioned as USS Idaho was in 1919. The USS Idaho BB42 was a battleship that saw service in World War II and had a central role in the Battle of Iwo Jima. Fife will share the history of these ships named for our state, as well as Idaho's rich Naval history that spans from Camp Farragut in Northern Idaho to Naval Reactors Facility at the Idaho National Lab.
This program will air on the Library's Livestream page and will be archived for later on-demand viewing.
