Navy Week In Idaho

What does the U.S. Navy mean to Idaho? Monday kicks of Navy Week and the captain of the Navy’s namesake sub, the USS Boise, drops by Idaho Matters to chat about what they’re doing in the Gem State. Los Angeles-class fast attack submarines, like the Boise, were designed at the height of the Cold War. Over 350 feet long, these high-tech giants can cruise beneath the ocean’s surface for months at a time, running on an almost endless supply of nuclear power.
