BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) --The USS North Dakota nuclear attack submarine is slated to be christened on the same day North Dakota celebrate its 124th birthday.

North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger says the submarine will be christened on Nov. 2 in Groton, Conn. North Dakota entered the Union on Nov. 2, 1889.

It will be the first time in almost a century that a military vessel has carried the name of North Dakota.

The $2.6 billion, 377-foot submarine will have 120 sailors and 14 officers. It's designed to launch missiles, carry commando teams and perform reconnaissance missions.
