My oldest is also in Groton, a nuclear tech on the USS Jackson. I was eager to take a tour. The sub is awesome. The technology they employ is amazing.

One thing I have come to appreciate is how dangerous their job is. I'm proud of my boy, and thankful there are so many like him willing to take that risk to protect our country. Congrats on your trip Mr. Bender - lucky dog

We cruised by the Annapolis today outside of Annapolis. Gotta say it is pretty cool seeing one of those things just floating out there in your home waters We went over for ice cream last night and saw the Admiral's launch going in and out. I said, "Gee I don't see a ship out there, wonder where they're going?" Glad I didn't run into the thing

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE ANNAPOLIS HAS BEEN TO ANNAPOLIS. THE COLLAGE STUDENTS CAN TOUR THE BOAT FOR FREE THIS WEEKEND. THE COMMANDING OFFICER D.J. McKELVEY IS A COOL COMMANDER. WE PULLED INTO THE CHESAPEAKE ON THURSDAY MORNING.

Cool! I was stationed in New London, CT. on the sub tender, the U.S.S. Fulton, 85-88. I was aboard a few subs but never underway on one.

And exactly how many Horsepower does that bad boy have?

Ron,

That is awesome. You sound just as excited in this post as you did on the phone before the trip.

I know a lot of us would pay big bucks for that ride.

Please tell your son that we greatly appreciate his service to our country and to take good care of our tax dollars!
