Captain (later Rear Admiral) Kelln's greeting to the RAYunion 2017 Banquet.
From our commissioning Engineer:
What our people should know is that the Ray was completed in the shortest time of any nuclear submarine. I was the first officer to report and Bob Kennedy was soon after. We also set the NNSB&DDC record for the most deficiencies submitted. Clearly the performance after commissioning stands for itself. This was the result of an outstanding engineering department.
