The Navy’s saddest fast-attack sub will finally get the tender loving maintenance it needs
Geoff Ziezulewicz
 

Back in October 2015, Adele soared to the top of the pop charts with the song “Hello,” and then-Vice President Joe Biden confirmed he would not be running for president the following year.

It was also the last month that the hapless fast-attack submarine Boise was out on patrol.

The boat was supposed to head into maintenance back then, but an unending backlog in availabilities meant the sub had to wait … and wait … and wait.

But in a bit of good news for Boise, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday told lawmakers Thursday that the sub’s long-awaited yard time is expected to begin this year.

Give a Democrat a fish and he'll eat for a day.  Teach a Democrat to fish and he'll steal your rod, take your wallet, sexually assault the fish, and then blame President Trump.
