PROVIDENCE, RI (July 25,2008) Former Soviet submarine Juliett 484 submerges to surface after sitting on the bottom of the Providence River for over a year. U.S. Navy and Army Divers along with Federal, State, and Local Authorities participate in a joint service operation to raise the sunken former Soviet submarine Juliett 484, at Collier Point Park in Providence, RI. Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit TWO Company TWO ONE (MDS CO 2-1), US Army Dive Company and NAVSEA OOC Support Unit prepare to salvage the former Soviet submarine that sank at her mooring point in about 30 feet of water during a nor’easter, which struck Providence in April of 2007. This training exercise is part of the DoD’s Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) program. Through IRT, military divers receive training by taking part of real-world, community-based projects. IRT and civil-military projects improve military readiness and help rebuild America. (U.S. Navy video by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Eric Lippman/Released)
