NAVAL BASE POINT LOMA, Calif. (NNS) -- Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Pasadena (SSN 752) arrived to her new homeport at Naval Base Point Loma, Nov. 8.

Pasadena, with a crew of 150 Sailors, departed Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, Sept. 9, to her new homeport after completing an extended overhaul.

Pasadena travelled more than 7,000 miles from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to begin an extended maintenance overhaul at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Sept. 2, 2011. During her overhaul, Pasadena received extensive modernization, including the installation of the latest fire control system, sonar and navigation equipment.

"The crew of USS Pasadena and their families are happy to be in San Diego, our new homeport," said Cmdr. Mark Cooper, Pasadena's commanding officer, a native of Butner, N.C.

Pasadena is the U.S. Navy's second "improved" 688-class nuclear-powered submarine. Two years after it was commissioned in July 1991, Pasadena became the first 688I to deploy.

Pasadena is now assigned to Submarine Squadron Eleven, which consist of six Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarines, an undersea rescue command, a torpedo weapons retriever, and a floating dry-dock
