Submarine to be stationed on Guam in 2010

Guam will be home to a fast attack submarine this time next year. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo announced that the USS Oklahoma City currently home ported in Norfolk, Virginia and undergoing a major overhaul—will be home ported on the island in 2010.
The Oklahoma City–with its 121 enlisted sailors and 13 officers—– will replace the USS City of Corpus Christi which will go to Hawaii for repairs.
The congresswoman says the home porting of the submarine shows the navy's continued commitment to maintaining a forward deployed presence on Guam.
