"The first picture, I think, is very interesting because the USS Nautilus (SSN 571) was still in commission and would tie up across the
pier from us. This picture is of the oldest and newest nuc-boat in the fleet (at the time). The time frame is late summer, 1976.
The next two pictures are of the maneuvering area. They should be familiar to you. And the last picture is of the CO awarding me a
Good Conduct award in February '76.
There is 1 more installment to follow.
