Attended sub school from Jan 1976 until Mar 1976 with some of my buddies from boot camp and RM "A" school. Also did Submarine Communications Pipeline there from Oct 1983 until Oct 1984. Had a great time there.

Attended submarine school August - September 1980.  Still my favorite base of all time.  Oh the days of swimming at the pond and going to the base theater.

Went to sub school in Feb of 88, right after Great Lakes. Stayed there in Groton for "A" school, "C" school, 4 submarines and 2 shore duties. Finally left and went to Squadron One out in Pearl and retired from there.

I had better make a quick correction.  [Then] Senior Chief "Red" Padgett's title should have been TMCS (SS).  My apologies to that fine warrior and inspiration in my life.  I would have corrected the original text, but I could not find an "edit" feature.


Also, I was previously at RTC-Orlando, not NTC.  Again, sorry for the confusion.
