The crew of Los Angeles-class submarine USS Olympia conducted final preparations for exiting the new magnetic-silencing facility Dec. 15 as the submarine finished undergoing "deperming." The Olympia was the first submarine to complete this treatment at the "drive-in" facility at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam's Beckoning Point.
