Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


USS George Washington (SSBN-598), the lead ship of her class of ballistic missile submarines, was the third ship of the United States Navy to be named for George Washington, first President of the United States, and the first of that name to be purpose-built as a warship.

The USS George Washington was decommissioned on 24 January 1985, was struck from the Naval Vessel Registry on 30 April 1986, and was scheduled for disposal through the Ship-Submarine Recycling Program at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. Recycling of the ship was completed on 30 September 1998. Her sail was removed prior to disposal and now resides at the Submarine Force Library and Museum, New London, Connecticut. The "Georgefish" made 55 deterrent patrols in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in her 25-year career.
