Description

The USS North Carolina (SSN-777) was built by Northrop Grumman Newport News (then called Newport News Shipbuilding & Drydock Company) in Newport News, Virginia on 30 September 1998 and her keel was laid on 22 May 2004. She was christened on 21 April 2007 sponsored by Linda Bowman, wife of Admiral Frank L. “Skip” Bowman, the former director of Naval Reactors. Captain Mark E. Davis, the ship’s first commanding officer, leads a crew of approximately 134 officers and enlisted personnel.

The ship’s official commissioning ceremony was held on May 3, 2008, in Wilmington, North Carolina, then she joined the U.S. Navy’s Atlantic Fleet based in New London, Connecticut.
