Nebraska was originally assigned to Submarine Group 10 at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia. On 1 October 2004, Nebraska was transferred to Submarine Squadron 17 in Submarine Group 9 at Naval Base Kitsap, Bangor, Washington where it currently resides.
The sub has successfully launched Trident missiles for testing four times, once in 1995, in 2004, in 2008, and another in 2011.
As of November 2013, the sub had completed 62 deterrent patrols during its 20 years of service. Each patrol is usually 77 days in duration followed by 35 days in port for maintenance.
Following Patrol 54, Nebraska was awarded the “Battle E” for Submarine Squadron 17. Additionally, following Patrol 56, the submarine was awarded the “Battle E” for Submarine Squadron 17 for its second consecutive year. After completing an unprecedented 116-day patrol in late 2013, Nebraska was again awarded the “Battle E,” her third in four years.
