At random: Long considered a versatile and deadly instrument of war, the submarine has broadened her capabilities with the adoption of nuclear power. Today the submarine serves as a ballistic missile platform, early warning station, killer of surface and underwater vessels, scout, coastal raider troop transport, supply ship, mine layer, and seaplane tender.

I found the ship's patch they show quite interesting:

Patch has the Seattle skyline backed by Mt Rainier as seen from the north. Sub is covered in NW Indian graphics breeching like a Killer Whale.Dolphins are silver and gold with Port and Starboard running light eyes. All overlaying a map of the sate of Washington. In silhouette, in the green, is the battleship Washington from WW II. The two gold stars represent the two capital ships that bear the Washington name. Thing must be hell to stitch with all the colors and detail. Interesting the hull number matches the design number of the Boeing Dreamliner airplane, 787. Some lobbying went on for that.

Only thing missing is Vashon Island were I grew up. it sits in Puget Sound between Seattle and Tacoma. It isn't on the state outline. It is a big island and take a lot of map space.
