 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (NNS) -- Commander, Submarine Group 2 helped bring the Navy to New Mexico Oct. 3 during Albuquerque Navy Week 2009.

Rear Adm. Paul J. Bushong, who served as the spokesman for the event, helped kick off the week of activities, which are part of an awareness campaign to bring the Navy to cities throughout the country without a large fleet presence.

Other Navy attractions during Albuquerque Navy Week 2009 include, Navy Band Southwest "Destroyers" performances, a Blue Angels F/A-18 Flight Simulator, an Accelerate Your Life Simulator and a Navy Theme-Wrapped Suburban. All are free and open to the public.

The Navy - New Mexico connection can be traced as far back as the early 1900s when the battleship New Mexico was in service from 1917 to 1946. During World War II, the battleship operated in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and participated in six major battles.

The next New Mexico, a Virginia-class submarine, is completing construction and should go on sea trials in November 2009. The new submarine will be commissioned and delivered to the Navy early in the year 2010. The submarine has received outstanding support from the Navy League's New
