Submarine Sea Stories
So something a little different for today…
A couple of weeks ago I got invited by Bill Nowicki to be his guest on the fantastic podcast, “Submarine Sea Stories,” which is a collection of guys recollecting their time in the sub fleet, primarily during the Cold War. I’ve enjoyed the podcast for some time, as it is a lot of funny and interesting stories about guys that for the most part I never actually met but that doesn’t really matter much since we share such a unique experience as submarining. Bill’s podcast brings a lot of that back, and it also allows outsiders to share in the experience in a way that is informative and entertaining.
After the show on Thursday the 3rd, Bill called me in the studio and we spent an hour talking about my career in the Navy and aboard USS Michigan. Bill does a great interview, and I love talking about the Navy and Subs, so it was a very enjoyable hour.
With your kind indulgence, I would like to share it with you today. This is a part of my life that I have alluded to on the show, but never really talked about in this kind of detail on the air. There are some words that might offend, not many but some, so if you listen to it be aware that you might not want to blast it around the office.
Obviously we didn’t have time to talk about everybody and everything that happened, but I hope that it comes across that I loved being on the Boat and that even today, I think that the crew of USS Michigan SSBN-727(G) was the greatest group of men that ever sailed the Pacific Ocean. I am honored to have served with them and I am thankful that they were – and are – a part of what I bring to you each and every day.
When you get an hour, here is Episode 18 – Ho, Ho, Ho! I’m Escaping A Submarine.
And when you’re done with that one, make sure to find Submarine Sea Stories on iTunes, like it and share it! Download and listen to the whole list of episodes. You’ll have a great time!
