On a regular basis would be nice ....

We could use the training.
A pair of nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines has been patrolling off the eastern seaboard of the United States over recent days, a rare mission that has raised concerns inside the Pentagon and intelligence agencies about a more assertive stance by the Russian military.

The episode has echoes of the cold war era, when the United States and the Soviet Union regularly parked submarines off each other’s coasts to steal military secrets, track the movements of their underwater fleets — and be poised for war.
Make a port visit or two out of it as well. The folks at the pier in Newport or Groton would put on a fine liberty call for 'ya.

Just don't go on liberty anywhere south of NYC -- still too hot this time of year.

Oh, and anyone who is worried about this is a fool.
