------------------------------------------------------------

USS Bremerton (SSN-698), a Los Angeles-class submarine, was the second vessel of the United States Navy to be named for Bremerton, WA. The contract to build her was awarded to the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics Corporation in Groton, CT on 24 January 1972, and her keel was laid on 8 May 1976. She was launched on 22 July 1978 and commissioned on 28 March 1981.

When USS Los Angeles was decommissioned on 23 January 2010, Bremerton became the oldest commissioned submarine in the US fleet. On that day, Richard O'Kane's cribbage board was transferred from Los Angeles to Bremerton, a tradition that dates back to World War II.

On 20 July 2017, she became the longest-commissioned U.S. Navy submarine, at the time, surpassing USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642). On 6 April 2018, she returned to Pearl Harbor from her 16th and final deployment. When Bremerton was inactive in 2018, the cribbage board was transferred from Bremerton to USS Olympia (SSN-717).

On 20 April 2018, USS Bremerton left Pearl Harbor for the last time en route to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, WA to enter the submarine recycling program.

Bremerton was officially decommissioned on 21 May 2021, at the U.S. Naval Undersea Museum in Keyport, WA.
