Urgency drives DLA Puget Sound team in maintaining ballistic-missile submarines
COLUMBUS, Ohio —
The design of the Ohio-class submarine allows the vessel to operate 15 or more years between major overhauls. On average, the submarines spend 77 days at sea followed by only 35 days in-port for maintenance, creating urgency for on-shore personnel who must ensure the vessel is ready when called back to action.
