USS HADDO (SSN-604)



The second Haddo was launched by New York Shipbuilding Corp. Camden N.J. 18 August 1962; sponsored by Mrs. Henry M. Jackson wife of the Senator from Washington; commissioned 16 December 1964 Comdr. John G. Williams in command.

After shakedown out of New London Conn. in January 1965 Haddo arrived at her home port Charleston S.C. 8 February and joined Sub Ron 4. She operated off the Atlantic coast and in the Caribbean until departing Charleston 7 July for the Mediterranean. She participated in numerous exercises with ships of the 6th Fleet and NATO countries before returning home 7 November. Haddo has continued this pattern of service alternating operations out of home port in the Atlantic with 6th Fleet deployments through 1967.
