Ron,

I hope you are having a good holiday season.  Half of the HAMPTON crew is on leave visiting family and the other half of us are holding down the fort until the 28th of DEC when we swap around.

The Captain and I wanted to thank you for taking time to come down to San Diego on the 10th to speak to our sailors and award the outstanding ones for their efforts.  It truly means a lot to them.  They were buzzing about it for several days.  We also enjoyed the wine.  I took home the white and he took home the red.  Very nice gesture. 

I have attached the pictures we took with the ship's camera from the event.  Some of them turned out pretty good.  Hopefully you will find these and the ones you took useful for your website.  I have also included a small description of our activities since July.

Please let me know if you need any other information from us.

Thanks again for the continued support.  I hope you and your family have a great Christmas season.

Take care,

LCDR Will Wiley
Executive Officer
USS HAMPTON (SSN 767)


"Since July 2012, the USS HAMPTON (SSN 767) and her crew have been extremely busy.  The crew focused on gaining operational proficiency after spending five-months in dry dock conducting a Dry Docking Continuous Maintenance Availability (DCMAV).  The period in dry dock was the largest maintenance period outside of a CNO Maintenance Availability in the Submarine Force's history to date.  With all the work done in port during the first half of 2012, the second half allowed the ship to stay at sea certifying a new Fire Control and Sonar System.  The ship also tested and certified a brand new radio room.  All of these make HAMPTON the most advanced submarine in the Submarine Force.  In September, the ship was evaluated as Above Fleet standards by the Nuclear Propulsion Examination Board during an unannounced Operational Reactor Safeguards Examination.  The inspection focused on the Engineering spaces and each year only about 10-15 percent of ships are graded as above fleet standards.  On October 5th, HAMPTON welcomed its new Commanding Officer, CDR Lincoln Reifsteck, during a ceremony at Naval Base Point Loma that bid farewell to CDR Tony Lott.  CDR Lott was awarded the Legion of Merit for his service and transferred to the staff of Commander Submarine Squadron ELEVEN.  With their new CO in charge, the ship spent the rest of the year honing its tactical prowess by working with the USS NIMITZ Battlegroup to certify them for their upcoming 7th & 5th Fleet deployments.  This operational time culminated in HAMPTON again being evaluated as Above Fleet Standards during a Tactical Readiness Evaluation (TRE) on 06 December.  Less than 10 percent of ships are able to be evaluated as above fleet standards on both these exams in the same year.  It is a credit to the hard work and training the crew conducted throughout the year.  Now HAMPTON is beginning is Pre-Overseas Movement cycle as it prepares for its June 2013 WESTPAC deployment."
