USS Minnesota Welcomes New Skipper

The USS Minnesota (SSN 783) welcomed Cmdr. Brad Bozin, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, as its new commanding officer at the Flasher World War II Memorial in Groton, Connecticut on September 8th.

Outgoing skipper Cmdr. Thomas Flaherty, a native of Buffalo, New York, led the Virginia-class submarine through multiple campaigns and a 2019 deployment that earned the crew a 2019 Battle “E” and prestigious Battenberg Cup.

During his tenure, the Minnesota crew was recognized for sustained superior combat readiness by “rigorously and flawlessly executing deployed operations in the European Command Theater,” from the Battenberg citation.

Minnesota and crew operate under SUBRON 4 one of two SUBRONs based out of Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut. SUBRON 4’s mission is to man, train and equip Sailors assigned to fast attack submarines to ensure that they are combat ready and capable of taking the fight to the enemy. Its submarines are able to bring strength, agility, firepower and endurance to the battle space like no other platform in the U.S. Navy.
