Subs Return Home: Babies Held, Wives Kissed

At least four boats have returned home in the last month from deployments: USS Philadelphia, USS Memphis, USS Key West, and USS Louisville. As is appropriate, the Navy NewsStand photos focused on what was important to the crew: seeing your family again.

They had pictures of babies being held here and here, and pictures of wives being kissed here and here. For us sub pr0n fans, they had a decent picture of USS Louisville's bridge, and, in a rare action shot, we get to see the traditional lei being deployed on USS Key West. A closer version of the above-linked shot is below:

Have a good time on stand down, guys... you've earned it.

Going deep...

Is it just me, or does the Key West look a little battered? When I was in Hawaii I wandered down to subbase fairly often and never saw a _silver_ submarine there.
