Submarine Veterans

After exchanging private messages with another FROG submarine veteran, it got me to wondering... How many US submarine service veterans are on these forums ??
Must be more than just the two of us...!

I'll kick it off...
1975 - 1980 USS GUITARRO (SSN-665) Fast Attack out of San Diego, CA
Radioman RM2-SS

Retiring from my own carpentry business in July and hitting the road in our 2011 Georgetown with my DW and our furbaby Foxie...

Coming to shore duty it’s night and day from our community. I can’t wait to get back. At least when I was on the Michigan we still called y’all radioman and my skipper addressed me as TM2 at the time. Times change but some things never die. Thank you as well for everything you’ve done. What type of wood working did you do? I’ve built a few small projects but I also did a full size futon and 75” wide entertainment center when I was in High School.
