Flyer for From the Three Rivers to the Deep Blue Sea program

Rescheduled for Tuesday, August 23 from 6:30-7:30 pm

Pittsburgh has always been associated with steel, bridges and the rivers that surround the city. But for over a hundred years, Pittsburgh has also been home to many people who have a strong connection with the sea services. The submarine USS Pittsburgh was an important part of history and the men and women of Pittsburgh were there to support her from her launching to her decommission. 

Join Bob MacPherson, a Retired Navy Chief Warrant Officer (Submarine Engineering Technician) with over twenty years of service, for this discussion about the history of the USS Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Navy League.
