The USS Pasadena (SSN-75) is a Los Angeles class submarine and the third vessel of the United States Navy to be named after the city of Pasadena, California. Recently, Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro released a letter addressed to Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Pasadena) in which he expressed his willingness to consider naming a new ship after Pasadena. The current USS Pasadena is a nuclear submarine that was put into service in February. The decommissioning of a ship usually occurs when it has become too old or outdated and is honorably removed from the country's armed forces.
In January, Congressman Gordo and Congresswoman Judy Chu contacted Del Toro by phone to request that a new ship be named USS Pasadena. Three ships have already been named after the city: a cargo ship used in 1918 and 1919, a light cruiser from 1944 to 1950, and the current submarine.
