SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Mayor David Coss, two city councilors and more than a dozen Santa Fe residents are in Hawaii this week for the homecoming of a submarine named after New Mexico’s capital city.

The officials and members of the local USS Santa Fe Committee joined family members of the crew from the nuclear-powered submarine to welcome them back home to Pearl Harbor Tuesday after a six-month deployment.

Mayor Coss and committee Chair Rick Carver traveled by tugboat to meet the submarine on its approach to Pearl Harbor and then sailed into port on board the USS Santa Fe.

When each sailor stepped off the submarine, they were presented with a lei and given a bag of New Mexico goodies shipped from Santa Fe.
