Jefferson City has had the honor, pleasure and distinct privilege of hosting Commanding Officers and crew members of the USS Jefferson City Submarine several times during the past several years and we look forward to continuing that relationship for a long time to come.
The citizens of Jefferson City take great pride in the fact that such an outstanding submarine as the USS Jefferson City was named after our city. The relationship between the City and the USS Jefferson City's crew members is second to none among the many city-named submarines patrolling under our seas today, and their namesake cities.
"Pride Runs Deep" is an oft-quoted maxim among submariners, a saying that stands as well, for the pride of the citizens of our City in its ongoing relationship with our namesake submarine and our support for its outstanding defenders of our freedoms.
The creation of these web pages are just one small example of how we can demonstrate our gratitude, respect and admiration for the continuing efforts of the crew members of this fighting ship that bears the name "USS Jefferson City."
Whenever we see a member of the United States Navy wearing gold or silver dolphins, we all should take the time to thank them for what they have done, are doing and will continue to do for our nation in keeping us free.
