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

The USS Los Angeles (SSN-688), lead ship of her class of submarines, was the fourth ship of the United States Navy to be named for Los Angeles, CA. The keel was laid down on January 8, 1972, launched on April 6, 1974, and commissioned on November 13, 1976. Los Angeles hosted President Jimmy Carter and the First Lady on May 27, 1977, for an at-sea demonstration of her capabilities.

The Los Angeles made her first operational deployment to the Mediterranean Sea in 1977 and was awarded a Meritorious Unit Citation. In 1978, she transferred to the Pacific Fleet and was assigned to Submarine Squadron 7, homeported in Pearl Harbor, HI. She conducted 17 Pacific deployments over the next 32 years and earned eight Meritorious Unit Citations and a Navy Unit Citation. The Los Angeles participated in four multinational "Rim of the Pacific" (RIMPAC) exercises and visited numerous foreign ports in Italy, Republic of the Philippines, Diego Garcia, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Australia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Canada, and Singapore.

Her capabilities included undersea, surface, and strike warfare, along with mining operations, special forces delivery, reconnaissance, carrier battle group support and escort, and intelligence collection.

At her time of decommissioning on February 4, 2011, the Los Angeles was the oldest submarine in the fleet.
