Hoeven Joins Naval Officials to Commission USS North Dakota

GROTON, CONN. – Senator John Hoeven today joined U.S. Navy officials, congressional and state leaders and North Dakota residents to celebrate the commissioning of the USS North Dakota, an advanced Virginia-class nuclear submarine named in honor of the state.
