USS Georgia

Two ships of the United States Navy (and two of the Confederate States Navy[?]) have been named USS Georgia in honor of the fourth state.

The first USS Georgia (BB-15), a Virginia-class battleship[?], was provided training and convoy escort service during World War I, and became a transport to bring troops home after the war ended.

The second USS Georgia (SSBN-729)[?], the fourth Ohio-class submarine, no longer serves as a ballistic missile submarine, but will be converted into a guided missile submarine (SSGN).

See also CSS Georgia (steamer)[?] and USS Georgia (battery)[?].
