SSN 792 Mementos

Get on Board with Dewey!

The VERMONT (SSN 792) Commissioning Committee is proud to partner with The Vermont Teddy Bear Company to offer Dewey Bears with our USS VERMONT logo. Our bears are called Dewey in honor of Admiral George Dewey, the only officer of the U.S. Navy ever to hold the rank of Admiral of the Navy. Admiral Dewey was born in 1837 in Montpelier, Vermont and his distinguished service during the Civil War in 1861 through the Spanish-American War in 1898 resulted in Congress awarding him the rank of Admiral.

Proceeds from your Dewey Bear purchase will help the VERMONT (SSN 792) Commissioning Committee, representing all Vermonters, to provide support for the VERMONT, her crew, and in keeping with U.S. Navy traditions, a memorable Commissioning Ceremony.
