Our state's fourth namesake on the high seas, the current U.S.S. Nevada is a ballistic missile submarine that plays an important role in our nation's defense. Its captain, Commander Alan Schrader, and several of its sailors toured Reno this spring, telling Nevadans about their ship and sharing the lure of sailing with local students.
