Launch of the SSBN 658 Mariano C. Vallejo at Mare Island (above)


When the nuclear ballistic missile submarine USS Mariano G. Vallejo SSBN 658 was decommissioned in 1995, parts of the boat were saved with the idea that someday they would be put on public display on Mare Island. Those parts include the boat's control room, her periscopes, and her 65-ton sail & dive planes. The periscopes and control room displays are now in the Mare Island Museum, literally across the street from where the ship was built & launched 30 years earlier.

The sail currently stands in a temporary secure location on the waterfront,awaating its historic journey to rest in front of the Mare Island Museum (Building 46).to serve as a memorial - a dramatic, accessible site for permanent display.

This will take money - and the support of all those who recognize the history of Mare Island, the important role of the nuclear submarine fleet in the defense of the United States, and who support the recognition of all those who built and served on the 658.

We need help in the form of cash, structural engineering, landscape architecture, structural concrete, and more. If you don't have money to spare, we can use your labor, and if, like many of us, your tired old bones protest at the thought of cutting poles and digging holes, we can use your support in spreading the news of our efforts throughout the Vallejo community.
