Welcome back to the our channel for a feature on the intense operations and life inside a US Submarine. In comments; I spent over 23 Years on Submarines in my US Navy career. During that time I spent more than 17 1/2 of those years at sea away from my family. Missed a large amount of Family functions, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Births, and Deaths. Was at sea for 9/11. Submariners are a special kind of person. We rely on each other to make sure the number of dives equals the number of surfaces. Each and every crew member knows that if there is a casualty onboard, we will do everything in our power to correct it and save the boat. Would do it all over again. ETRCS(SS), USN RET.
-I served 24 years on 3 Aircraft Carriers and a Guided-Missile Cruiser. Submarines are a whole different animal. They are one of the most lethal weapons on the planet. U.S. Submarines are feared by the enemy for good reason. Their stealth is legendary, and they can put themselves into position to take down the mightiest surface ship. A Ballistic Missile Submarine has the ability to take out entire countries. They should be feared.
