Camden - Kings Bay Council

TRIDENT Training Facility Tour

Thirty one Camden - Kings Bay and Savannah Council members joined CAPT Steven Hall, Commanding Officer, and CMDCM Matt Suzor, Command Master Chief, for an April 14th tour of TRIDENT Training Facility. The group experienced up-close demonstrations of the damage control wet trainer, the diesel lab, the torpedo lab, the ship control team trainer, and the Coast Guard simulator. As a special treat, the group was addressed by RDML Michael White, Commander Naval Education & Training Command, as well as by CAPT Hall. RDML White is responsible for over 200 training schools for the Navy and was visiting TTF that day. Following the tour, the group was treated to lunch by our Council. Special thanks to Cheryl Aston and Alyce Thornhill for arranging the lunch.
