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
