USS Maryland SSBN-738

Blue Crew Members Volunteer on Torsk!

During the week of January 8-12, 2001 fifteen members of the Blue crew of USS Maryland SSBN-738 came to Baltimore to volunteer their services aboard Torsk. They worked on the fresh water and sanitary systems, air systems, radar, sound powered phones, electrical systems, and cleaned (a list of their accomplishments is located at the end of these pages). The amount of work performed by these men was phenomenal!! A huge THANK YOU goes to each of them:
