-- Commemorated by the United States submarine community as Submarine Day, it is the anniversary of April 11, 1900, when the American Government purchased its first commissioned submarine, the USS Holland, named for her Irish-American inventor, John Philip Holland, although not the first submarine of the US Navy, which was the 1862 Alligator.

-- The U.S. Navy’s state-of-the-art NR-1 nuclear-powered submersible was the Cold War's most closely guarded - and revolutionary - secret. In 1966, after the U.S. almost lost a hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain, Admiral Hyman Rickover - father of the nuclear navy - outmaneuvered Congress and steamed full speed ahead on his brainchild: a spy mission and deep ocean recovery submarine with a miniature nuclear reactor that could navigate the ocean floor for weeks at a time.
