Default USA Submarines On Eternal Patrol

The Kursk thread took me down a path that I would have preferred not to go down but it should be traveled. Mods not sure where to post this. This is a website that chronicles those boats & sailors lost during the USA's history. Please move it to the appropriate forum.

Blind Mans Bluff is an excellent read...also was highlighted on the History Channel.

My old boss at Diebold was Norman H Walker, and he was featured in the History Channel episode.

Thx Chuck. I was also a fast attack submariner.... Back in the Cold War. Blind Man's Bluff got it right.

Great that you bring up the sub service. Those men sailed into harms way to serve their country. WWII submariners were among the highest casualty rates of all the services.

USS Tecumseh, SSBN 628 Blue

Nope. I don't do Facebook. Not into the social media scene. I'll fade away when it's time.

Thank you Chuck for reminding us of the incredible job the Navy, and in particular the submariners do.

If you don't mind - A quick shoutout to Dan Markeson (submariner) and Todd Schroeder (the strongest Master Chief that ever served the Navy!)




THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE ! GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!!
