Sailors dove off the Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Olympia during a recent swim call somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.

The Pearl Harbor-based Olympia had just wrapped up the biennial, multinational Rim of the Pacific exercise, during which it helped sink the decommissioned tank landing ship USS Racine by firing a Harpoon anti-ship cruise missile and an Mk-48 heavyweight torpedo.
