(March 28, 2008) Crew members of the guided-missile submarine USS Georgia (SSGN 729) stand at the ready after “bringing the ship to life” during a return to service ceremony, after the boat’s conversion from a ballistic-missile submarine to a guided-missile submarine.

Kings Bay has a new boat on the waterfront and how fitting it is the “Georgia”. There are more photos here and here. I read on bubbleheads blog about the Georgia state flag that was presented to the ship, it had been carried through all 159 counties….wow.
