Congratulations on your orders to USS OHIO (SSGN 726). OHIO is the lead ship of the OHIO Class Trident Ballistic Missile Submarines and also the first in its class to be selected for conversion to SSGN, the Navy's
newest and most lethal platform. As a crewmember of USS OHIO, you will be joining an elite group of submarine warriors known as the "First and Finest."
OHIO is home ported at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington just across the water from the "Emerald City" of Seattle. Government housing for married personnel is available, but you should be
aware that the wait could be as long as up to four to six months. In the meantime, there are reasonably priced rental properties, both apartments and single-family homes, available in the local community. If you are
single you can live in the barracks or you may choose to live out in town.
Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance to support your move and assignment to OHIO. Key phone numbers are as follows:
