Virginia was built under a teaming arrangement between General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton, Conn., and Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-Newport News, Va. She is the sixth U.S. Navy vessel to bear the name of the first English colony and the 10th American state.

Virginia was commissioned Oct. 23, 2004 and is the first of the newest class of nuclear-powered attack submarines, built to excel in anti-submarine warfare; anti-ship warfare; strike warfare; special operations; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; irregular warfare; and mine warfare missions. Adept at operating in both the world's shallow littoral regions and deep waters, Virginia directly enables five of the six Navy Maritime Strategy core capabilities — sea control, power projection, forward presence, maritime security, and deterrence.

The crew assigned to USS Virginia (SSN 774) bring her to life as they board the newly commissioned first nuclear-powered fast attack Virginia-class submarine and ninth U.S. naval vessel to be named for the "Old Dominion". Virginia is the Navy's only major combatant to join the fleet that was designed with the post-Cold War security environment in mind and embodies the war fighting and operational capabilities required to dominate the littorals while maintaining undersea dominance in the open ocean. Virginia will be homeported in Groton, Conn.
