USS Pasadena (SSN-752), a Los Angeles-class submarine, was the third ship of the United States Navy to be named for Pasadena, California. Pasadena provides the Fleet Commander or Task Force Commander a multi-mission platform. This vessel has unlimited endurance due to the nuclear propulsion plant, advanced sonar, torpedo, cruise missile, and mine delivery systems, a combination of speed and stealth due to quieting and the capacity to fulfill numerous missions. Pasadena was awarded the Submarine Squadron Seven Battle "E" Efficiency award for 1998, which recognizes commands that have attained the highest overall or departmental readiness to carry out their wartime tasks. She was awarded the Morale and Welfare Recreation (MWR) Fleet Recreation award for the entire Navy in 2001. She is still in active service as of 2013.
