Update: Poi & USS Hawaii not

USS Hawaii (SSN-776), one Virginia-class submarine,  changed home port from Groton, CT (Submarine Group Two, Submarine Squadron Two) to Pearl Harbor, HI (Submarine Squadron One).[6]

In addition to USS Hawaii, at least a few more boats have been assigned to Subron 1 of late:
USS Bremerton (SSN-698)
USS La Jolla (SSN-701)
USS Charlotte (SSN-766)
USS Greeneville (SSN-772)
USS Texas (SSN-775)

"The bowl of poi was considered such an important and sacred part of daily Hawaiian life that whenever a bowl of poi was uncovered at the family dinner table, it was believed that the spirit of Hāloa, the ancestor of the Hawaiian people, was present. This is because Hawaiians believed that the taro plant, or kalo, was the original ancestor of the Hawaiian people.[1] Because of that, all conflict among family members had to come to an immediate halt."[2]

If any member of USS Hawaii's crew relishes poi, however, he has probably not been bragging about the chow.

Alternate POI concept (for female submariners)

The sculpture depicted below was created by (no surprise) a woman:


The sculptress had this to say...

When her father (in a gender-neutral socialist country) asked her for a contribution honoring the national handball team, she thought:: "OK, I will do a bunch of men with dicks".  source

Guess what, readers?  There are major differences between men and women. Placing them togeter in a confined space is a recipe-certain for unnecessary consternation, degradation of US submarine primacy and (as lawyers know) will cause litigation.

Submarines are always silent and strange.
