Near the North Pole (Apr. 27, 2003) -- During Exercise ICEX 2003, the Seawolf-class attack submarine USS Connecticut (SSN 22) surfaced and broke through the ice. This polar bear, attracted by the hole which can be used to find food, was seen through the sub's periscope and these photos were captured as the image was projected on a flat-panel display. After investigating the Connecticut for approximately 40 minutes, the bear left the area, with no damage to the sub or to the bear.

San Diego, Calif. (Oct. 4, 2002) -- A Search and Rescue (SAR) swimmer prepares to jump from an SH-60B “Seahawk” helicopter assigned to the “Saberhawks” of Light Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Four Seven (HSL-47), as another SAR swimmer waits in the water during the routine training exercise. The “Seahawk” is a twin-engine helicopter used aboard cruisers, destroyers, and frigates for anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue, drug interdiction, anti-ship warfare, cargo lift, and special warfare operations. SAR swimmers provide naval units the ability to rescue downed aviators or mariners in distress at a moment’s notice.
