From the New London Day"  " 65 percent of the sailors have never served on a submarine before."

I've got more time on the sh*tter at test depth than you have on submarines.  And that's NOT funny anymore....

This custom Motorcycle was donated to the South Dakota.  It will be kept at the Motorcycle Museum in Sturgis, SD.  Any crew member of the USS South Dakota (SSN-790) can check it out and ride it anywhere in the state of South Dakota.

My MC days are behind me but, wow, sweet ride.

I hope they require some competency documentation before sending it out.
