| My father was my idol when I was growing
up. He always was there for us. I never tired of his submarine/war
stories from his days in the submarine service. I could sit for hours
and listen, laugh and learn from him. He told me stories from his
days as a torpedoman aboard the USS Pickerel SS-524. I guess that
is why followed in his footsteps once I graduated from High School.
I became a Submarine Sailor myself and also strived and became a successful
torpedoman myself. The submarine service takes pride in the men that
they allow to serve. My father always told me growing up, "Submarine
sailors are a different breed of people". I never new what he
meant until I was once one myself.
I hope others will find this site and put there experiences of
loved and relatives out here.
