Columbus also enjoyed four port visits, including Singapore and Guam.“The amount of buy-in the crew exhibited was outstanding,” said Anderson. “Every man did his part to accomplish qualifications and ultimately meet all tasking.”While on deployment Columbus traveled over 34,000 nautical miles crossing the equator twice making 135 Columbus crew members new shellbacks.After all the Columbus accomplished on deployment, the crew was happy to be home and reflected on what made the deployment successful.Columbus is one of the most advanced undersea vessels in the world, and its missions include deployment of special forces, minelaying, precision land attack, or anti-submarine or surface warfare while remaining undetected.
