The Navy has just published a couple of photos of MSRON-3 Sea Arks  participating in an Intergrared Exercise in San Diego,

I can't say that I miss doing HVTs at SBU-26. The free food we got when they did they steal beach picnics were alright though. That one where the PCC tug cut in too close to the decommed sub, ran into the dive planes and then sunk was pretty cool.

Didn't get to see the actual sinking myself. I was with the PBR's and we got there the evening after it happened. The guys on the PB's told us about it. It was in '91 or '92. The crew on the sub tried to warn the tug that they were getting too close to the dive planes, but the tug kept coming. The planes opened up a pretty good sized hole in the tug and she sunk. The tugs that came the following morning definitely gave the area where the planes were at a wide margin of error.

I think my next favorite one is when a sub hit the lock divider wall. It looked like they got caught in the unusual currents formed around the locks. It came up on the wall that separates the two sides of the locks at about a 45 degree angle. From where I was it looked like it struck hard enough that it bounced back a little. We held station there for a couple of hours by the Army base with the LCU's and MK8 boats, while they sent divers over the side. I guess there was no real damage, because they got under away again shortly after the divers got back onboard.

The below link goes to a Navy News article subject: "NECC Units Complete Integrated Exercise"

http://www.navy.mil/search/display.asp?story_id=64300 

Excerpt:

        “Maritime Security Squadron (MSRON) 4 and Riverine Squadron (RIVRON) 1 completed challenging exercises for more than a month for this final step. Each exercise was tailor-made by Expeditionary Training Group (ETG) to simulate the real-world operating environments that expeditionary units potentially face while deployed.
       
        This final exercise, an NECC Integrated Exercise (NIEX), was held at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, Cheatham Annex and Ft. Eustis. The NIEX was a series of threats which Americans would face in a country which had just had major combat and was now trying to restore normalcy.”
