It's official..

Today, our son-in-law became the commanding officer of the submarine USS Louisiana (SSBN743) Gold Crew. We are very proud of him. He, along with our daughter (and grandkids)has made a lot of sacrifices and worked very hard to achieve this. Prayers for safety and success, please.

What a proud moment for all of you. Congratulations! I am in awe of any one who can even be on a submarine (confession time- I have a huge phobia about being under water in a boat, in a tunnel, in any way contained under water) let alone command one. Excellent job, s-i-l.

Jeez, DP and Lat, I swear I recall leaving you two licking your wounds outside a bar in Subic Bay after a little disagreement with some jarheads. Being a pacifist, I never would have been involved, of course.

Sir, yes sir. Fortunately time spent in the Philippines is still hazy. However, I do recall a little fracas that started with my saying the best Marine is a submarine. Big Grin

Having never visited aforementioned establishments and being the teetotaler I am you guys must have mistaken someone else for me! Just to keep the record straight I spent my liberty visiting museums, libraries and other culturally enriching establishments.
