USS George Washington (SSBN-598) was the United States's first operational ballistic missile submarine. It was the lead ship of her class of nuclear ballistic missile submarines,was the third United States Navy ship of the name,in honor of George Washington (1732–1799),the first President of the United States,and the first of that name to be purpose-built as a warship.
An attack submarine or hunter-killer submarine is a submarine specifically designed for the purpose of attacking and sinking other submarines,surface combatants and merchant vessels. In the Soviet and Russian navies they were and are called "multi-purpose submarines". They are also used to protect friendly surface combatants and missile submarines. Some attack subs are also armed with cruise missiles,increasing the scope of their potential missions to include land targets.
The George Washington class was a class of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines deployed by the United States Navy. George Washington,along with the later Ethan Allen, Lafayette, James Madison,and Benjamin Franklin classes,comprised the "41 for Freedom" group of submarines that represented the Navy's main contribution to the nuclear deterrent force through the late 1980s.
USS Ethan Allen (SSBN-608),lead ship of her class,was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for American Revolutionary War hero Ethan Allen.
USS Theodore Roosevelt (SSBN-600),a George Washington-class submarine,was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for President Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919). Initially unnamed and assigned hull classification symbol SSGN-600 as a guided missile submarine,her keel was laid down on 20 May 1958 by the Mare Island Naval Shipyard using components initially assembled for the Skipjack-class submarine nuclear attack submarine USS Scamp (SSN-588). She was named Theodore Roosevelt and redesignated fleet ballistic missile submarine SSBN-600 on 6 November 1958,launched on 3 October 1959 sponsored by Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1884–1980),daughter of the ship's namesake,and commissioned on 13 February 1961 with Commander William E. Sims commanding the Blue Crew and Commander Oliver H. Perry,Jr. commanding the Gold Crew.

USS Will Rogers (SSBN-659) was a Benjamin Franklin-class ballistic missile submarine –the last of the "41 for Freedom" Polaris submarines. She was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for humorist Will Rogers (1879–1935).
USS Henry L. Stimson (SSBN-655),a Benjamin Franklin class fleet ballistic missile submarine,was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for Henry L. Stimson (1867–1950),who served as U.S. Secretary of State (1929–1933) and U.S. Secretary of War.
USS Grayback (SS/SSG/APSS/LPSS-574),the lead ship of her class of submarine,was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for the grayback.
USS Carbonero (SS/AGSS-337) was a Balao-class submarine,the first ship of the United States Navy to be named for the carbonero,a salt-water fish found in the West Indies. Her keel was laid down on 16 December 1943 by the Electric Boat Company of Groton,Connecticut. She was launched on 19 October 1944 sponsored by Mrs. S.S. Murray,and commissioned on 7 February 1945 with Commander Charlton L. Murphy,Jr. in command.
USS Baton Rouge (SSN-689) was a Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarine which served with the United States Navy. With her keel laid down on 18 November 1972,Baton Rouge was launched on 26 April 1975. She became the second Los Angeles-class submarine to be commissioned,on 25 June 1977. In 1995,she was the first of her class to be decommissioned,after a collision with a Russian Sierra-class submarine.
A nuclear submarine is a submarine powered by a nuclear reactor,but not necessarily nuclear-armed. Nuclear submarines have considerable performance advantages over "conventional" submarines. Nuclear propulsion,being completely independent of air,frees the submarine from the need to surface frequently,as is necessary for conventional submarines. The large amount of power generated by a nuclear reactor allows nuclear submarines to operate at high speed for long periods,and the long interval between refuelings grants a range virtually unlimited,making the only limits on voyage times being imposed by such factors as the need to restock food or other consumables.
USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642),a Benjamin Franklin-class ballistic missile submarine,was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for Kamehameha I,the first King of Hawaii. She is one of only two ships of the United States to be named after a monarch. She was later reclassified as an attack submarine and redesignated SSN-642.

USS Von Steuben (SSBN-632),a James Madison-class fleet ballistic missile submarine,was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben (1730–1794),a Prussian army officer who served in the American Revolutionary War.
USS Sam Rayburn (SSBN-635) was a James Madison-class fleet ballistic missile submarine named for Sam Rayburn (1882–1961),Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Sam Rayburn was in commission 2 December 1964 to 31 July 1989 carrying the Polaris missile and later the Poseidon missile. Following decommissioning,ex-Sam Rayburn was converted into a moored training ship for use at the Naval Nuclear Prototype Training Unit at Goose Creek,South Carolina.
The names of commissioned ships of the United States Navy all start with USS,for United States Ship. Non-commissioned,primarily civilian-manned vessels of the U.S. Navy under the Military Sealift Command have names that begin with USNS,standing for United States Naval Ship. A letter-based hull classification symbol is used to designate a vessel's type. The names of ships are selected by the Secretary of the Navy. The names are those of states,cities,towns,important persons,important locations,famous battles,fish,and ideals. Usually,different types of ships have names originated from different types of sources.
