uss CANCPUS KAS-341 The name CANOPUS originally belonged to the pilot Menelaus, King of Sparta. After Canopus died, he was said to have been transferred into the second brightest star in the heavens. This star can be found in the Constellation Carina, a part of the older Argo Navis, the ship's constellation. This star is used to connect the CANOPUS scroll and shield on our insignia. CANOPUS' keel was laid on March 2, 1964 and she was launched on February 10, 1965. She was commissioned on November 4, 1965, and her first assignment was at the Cooper River PBM Site in June, 1966. She was the flagship for SUBRON 18. In September, she set out for Rota, Spain for her next deployment and stayed there until 1969, compiling an impressive record. Her next stop was an overhaul in Bremerton, Wa. where she became the first tender to be outfitted for maintaining the new Poseidon submarines. She then set sail for Holy Loch, Scotland in 1970. After five years and another excellent deployment, she headed for another yard period. After completing extensive repairs in Charleston, S.C., it was on to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for refresher training. After another brief stop in Charlesto, she set sail for Flota in December, 1976, her current homeport. Another impressive record behind her, CANOPUS heads for the Cooper Fliver Site once again, Ready to Serve, Ready for Service.
