p.39

USS Los Alamos

The committee notes that 2018 will be the 75th anniversary of Los Alamos National Laboratory. The committee further notes that people of Los Alamos, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Navy, have a 74-year relationship that spans the Manhattan Project through the creation of a nuclear Navy and to the sea-based leg of the strategic nuclear triad of the United States. The people of Los Alamos and surrounding communities have contributed to the Navy’s offensive edge since World War II, through the Cold War, that continues today. The committee believes that naming a submarine USS Los Alamos will recognize and continue to forge the longstanding relationship between the Navy and Los Alamos. Therefore, the committee urges the Secretary of the Navy to name the next nuclear-powered fast attack submarine the USS Los Alamos.

Nanos is freaking out. " I personally rammed Los Alamos into an iceberg at full speed in order to sink it, I blamed the crew, and threw them overboard, I had to destroy the village in order to save it, and now just to scorn and mock me they they are naming a naval warship after Los Alamos!!!"

That's funny. Always heard that the Navy hates LLNL I guess a USS Livermore was out of the question. Good luck with your crappy LANL W-88's in those silos!

LLNL tried to force the Navy to use IHE and they didn't respond well to that.

So far (30-years) and no problems. Incidentally, it's a W88/Mk5 and they are not in silos, they are in missile tubes aboard SSBN submarines around the world.

To put it into perspective, this is like the US going into World War 1 armed with Civil War weapons.
