KEYPORT, Wash. – Capt. Eugene Nemeth, a Northampton, Pennsylvania, native and departing commanding officer of Naval Submarine Support Center (NSSC) Bangor, was relieved by Cmdr. Robert Jezek, a Fairfield, Ohio native, during his change-of-command ceremony at the Naval Undersea Museum, Feb. 20.

The command provides the Pacific Northwest submarine fleet with support in a number of functional areas including operations, material, legal, administration, medical and engineering.

“NSSC’s mission is to get the right people to the right places at the right time and they are an indispensable part of making team Bangor successful,” said Rear Adm. Dave Kriete, Submarine Group (CSG) 9 commander. NSSC supported the Ohio-class Trident submarine USS Pennsylvania (SSBN 735) throughout its record breaking 140-day strategic deterrent patrol last year due to the diligent leadership of Nemeth.

Nemeth is set to report to CSG 9 after serving as commanding officer at NSSC for more than four years. He gave his remarks following the NSSC chaplain’s invocation in front of more than 100 service members, family and friends.

“The objectives and missions here are achieved and executed because of the fantastic team that comes together and works together to get the job done,” said Nemeth. “You never let me down, rose to every challenge and always looked for ways to improve how we do business.”

Before assuming command at NSSC, Jezek was the Officer in Charge, Submarine Learning Center Det. San Diego.

“I look forward to working with all of you,” said Jezek. “We’ll take the helm and continue the seamless track record established by all of you.”

NSSC continues to provide support for CSG9, Commander, Submarine Squadron (CSS) 17 and CSS 19 keeping their Sailors mission ready.
