Sorry it has been awhile since we last posted.

We are planning to do something special for less fortunate children this holiday season with a program called Submarine Santa. We will be collecting toys and delivering them to children at CHKD in Norfolk, VA.


The USS Albany First Class Association plans to deliver a holiday meal to duty section personnel who are keeping the good ship safe during the holidays.

Any ideas from our FB followers on how to raise some money this holiday season; to offset holiday party costs, would be much appreciated.

Have safe and happy holidays!

Have you thought about picking up some college courses for the next semester? How about setting some fitness goals for the next 2,4,6,or 12 months? And what about that ever elusive qual you've been procrastinating about?

Opportunity waits for no man...playing it safe is boring!!! You'd be amazed what you're really capable of if you just take the first step. Move before you think you are ready. With enough energy and morale you can overcome any obstacle...



Keep Charging, Men!

3*251=753. Therefore, 753 is not a prime number...In case you were wondering...Hope you're having an awesome weekend crew.

Men if you haven't read Turn The Ship Around by CAPT (ret) David Marquet, you should definitely look into it.

“Leadership should mean giving control rather than taking control and creating leaders rather than forging followers.” Imagine leadership at every level on the good ship Albany... How many things could we accomplish???

Shipmates, we've made the website! Hope everyone enjoyed the ceremony. Let's continue to make history men. Welcome aboard CDR Landis. So long CAPT Soldow. Fair winds and following seas old friend.
