While I might not have "got my guppies"
I consider myself luckier than most other
Spook Riders in that during my time of service
I was fortunate enough to ride at least one of every
major class of Nuclear Powered Fast Attack
Submarines built during the Cold War.
From the Skate Class USS Sargo SSN-583
(Two Screws, Stern Tubes, and Bow Planes)
to the LA Class USS Groton SSN-694
(one of the then new "Hotel Boats").
Sadly, all the ships I ever served on are
now "Razor Blades" Man, am I getting old.
