USS Mariano G. Vallejo (SSBN-658), a Benjamin Franklin-class ballistic missile submarine, was named for Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, a key proponent of California statehood.

Mariano G. Vallejo was decommissioned and stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 9 March 1995. Ex-Mariano G. Vallejo entered the Nuclear Powered Ship and Submarine Recycling Program in Bremerton, Washington, on 1 October 1994 and on 22 December 1995 ceased to exist. Her sail was preserved and is slated to become part of a memorial at Mare Island.
