07-May-1991 -- The North Pole picture is a picture of the USS Pargo (SSN 650). From March 1991 to July 1991, Pargo participated in LANTSUBICEX 1-91, spending 61 days under the Arctic Ice cap, steaming 14000 miles and surfacing through the ice eighteen times. During this time, she conducted a joint tactical development exercise with HMS TIRELESS (SSN 15), highlighted by a combined surfacing at the North Pole (True North) on May 7th. (Submitted by Henry C.
