PCU Texas arrives in Galveston

This picture from the Galveston County Daily News is so cool I just had to post it here, even though I don't really have any deep thoughts on the subject. It shows PCU Texas (SSN 775) entering Galveston harbour in company with the barque Elissa. Texas will be commissioned this Saturday (9 Sep 06).

Texas was also welcomed by a pair of North American SNJ Texans. The SNJ (known to the Army and Air Force as the T-6, and to the Brits as the Harvard) was a basic combat trainer used in the '40s and '50s.
