The next Navy submarine will be named the U.S.S. Wisconsin.
This comes after U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin proposed a resolution to request the Secretary of the Navy give a submarine the state’s namesake. There was a Navy ship named the U.S.S. Wisconsin, which served frequently since its launch in 1944 and was retired in 1991. Baldwin says Wisconsin is known for its contributions to the Navy including Manitowoc’s role manufacturing submarines, which were used in World War Two.
