Admiral Rickover born today in 1900.  That makes him 121 years old.

The KOG would have been Seventy Years Old in this photo on Trepang's Alpha Trial.
The OOD would have been twenty-eight.

Skipper, KOG is a term I'm not familiar with. Care to illuminate this old raghat? [Yes, I searched the net and NavSource, no joy.]

I was the OOD, the Skipper was CDR (Later RADM) Dean Sackett

KOG was a euphemism - Kindly Old Gentleman.

Google on KOG Rickover

PS Like you, I was a raghat (that ended up being Commisioned.)
