I heard that the SSBN's spend a lot less time on alert than we did.

Don't know the program for the SSGN's.

Don't know if you heard about it Chris, but on the 610 we surfaced one night mid-patrol to off load a guy who was found unconscious by the 400 cycle generator in AMR1.  Apparently he was electrocuted while servicing it.  As I recall he was a nuke EM2 so I'm not sure why he would be doing that?  I'm not sure where we were but the injection temp. was really cold and it happened sometime in 1964, I think; not really sure about that either -- could have been '65.  But, I do remember the guy's name . . . which I do find weird.  Never heard any more about him after that.  But, not long ago I saw his photo posted on line from a 610 reunion so I guess he made it.  He was a good guy so I was glad to see that photo.



During my time on 610 we surfaced on two Med patrols; once for a "back aft" casualty and once for a data transfer to the Dace.

We had a "back aft" casualty once as well.  It was a fire in the bilges in the Engineering compartment but we didn't surface.  Just buttoned everything up and sweated in place.  After it was put out we came to PD and raised the snorkel to get rid of the smoke.  I happened to get caught in the tunnel and had to hang out there wearing a OBA during the entire kerfuffle.  Got mighty hot in there I can tell you.  The intrepid nukes took care of it and all was well.  But, I can't remember whether it was on the 610 or the 624.
