The USS Bremerton pulled into Naval Base Kitsap Wednesday morning, beginning a visit by the Navy’s oldest active sub to its namesake city. 

The sub and its crew will be here for at least six days, even performing a park cleanup at “Hal’s Corner” on Wheaton Way at Sheridan Road — fitting, since the area houses the battery and anchor from the original USS Bremerton, a Korean War-era cruiser.

Here’s some photos that I took of her arrival, and some other great ones submitted by readers.
