On the boat from 1964-1967. A little over 3 years on the boat, but 1,000+ dives and surfaces. really grew up and made many good friends. Helped me settle down and sort out what life really held in store for me. Lots of good thoughts and reminders as I fondly think back on thjose days
I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT MYSELF AND HOW TO CO-OPERATE WITH MY SHIPMATES TO GET THE JOB DONE. I FELT PRIVILEGED TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MEN THAT WERE SUBMMARINERS, THEY WERE A SPECIAL LOT. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE GREAT SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT WHEN I GOT MY DOLPHINS. THE TIME ABOARD THE GRENADIER WAS TRULY A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR ME..

TOM WRIGHT, IC3(SS)
1959-1960, WAS IC3(SS), TOOK 2ND CLASS EXAM ON BOARD, PROMOTED IN NUKE SCHOOL A COUPLE OF MONTHS LATER.
I was scared to be an Auxiliaryman, as I didn't want to have to dive the sanitary tanks. came to the Grenadier as a MM! in the fall of 1969. Not long after that #2 wouldn't blow. Both my junior petty officers were to big to get in the access, so I had to dive. Well, within the next 2 months, I had to dive #1 and #3. All the years I served on the boats this was the only time that anyone had to dive the tanks.

I was GRENADIER ship's yeoman during much of 1964 and 1965 thru August. Made a Med Cruise from early 64 August 64. I had a great time on this boat. Outstanding shipmates and a easy to keep happy wardroom. I've often said, "If I had my Navy career to do over again, I wouldn't change a thing Those years of lmy life were exceptional!"
