Built in 1983, the 360-foot Los Angeles-class attack submarine will be decommissioned in January 2015 at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine. After 31 years of service, the submarine completed 15 deployments to the North Atlantic, Mediterranean Sea, Central Command and European Command. It's the third naval ship to be named after the city of Norfolk.
