Sure was Dick. I qualified on USS Medregal SS 480 in Pearl. Then spent 5 years on USS Simon Bolivar SSBN 641 (commissioning crew Gold). I didn't get into submarines until my ninth year in the navy, so prior to that I did some time on AKAs LSTs and 1 DD (Lofberg). Also put the USS L.Y. Spear AS-36 in commission. Retired from the Navy in 73 and then spent the next 28 years in civil service working on submarine Periscopes and Antenna systems. Still do some consulting from the house.
