Pic of the Day – Dips The Ensign

PEARL HARBOR (Jan. 23, 2012) The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS La Jolla (SSN 701) dips the Ensign as the submarine tender USS Frank Cable pulls into Pearl Harbor for a port visit. Frank Cable is temporarily relieved from conducting maintenance of submarines and service vessels deployed in the US 7th Fleet area of responsibility by submarine tender USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) and is headed to Portland, OR for a regular overhaul and dry-docking. (US Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jeremy Starr/Released)
