Groton — Thirty officers and sailors from the USS Hartford (SSN 768) and USS San Juan (SSN 751) were recognized under the Subvets Submarine Qualification Recognition Program at the Submarine Veterans Clubhouse Jan. 7.

The sailors, who previously received their gold and silver “dolphins” on board their respective submarines, were recognized by submarine veterans, who warmly welcomed them into the community.

“As you can see, your legacy is in good hands. These men represent all the best of our nation,” Cmdr. Steve Wilkinson, commanding officer of the Hartford, told the group.

Groton Base Member Phil Marshall, who served on 13 submarines, said the newly-qualified sailors are “our future.”
