Interesting collage of photos. 1. The food supply can be solved by trolling fishing lures off the stern. 2. If the submarine is mostly under water or on the surface of water, then why is the swabbie dressed in camo?

"When the bad guys know the 2nd-strike capabilities of the Ohio-class submarine, they’re never going to
mess with the United States of America"

That's a false sense of security. It also assumes that there are reasonable, sane leaders at the helm on both sides and I ain't talking ships here. And let's face it there are far more ways to erode a country without stepping foot in it, electronic being one effective method to create and use distrust and chaos by shutting down power stations, communications, and so on. While it's great to have a strong and versatile weapon armory it's only a part of the equation. Enough said....

Many moons ago got to take a tour of an active duty atomic sub. Let us view almost every part of it. Not the engine room, because of obvious reasons. And not the torpedo room - they were loading torpedoes at the time. Even let us check out the periscope. That was a great day. Definitely a nice place to visit, but I would not want to live there.

It’s their NWU (Navy Work Uniform). The entire Navy wears them, regardless of where they’re stationed.

I have a lot of respect for Submariners, of any Navy. From my time in the Australian Navy I got a tour of an Australian and US submarine. Very cramped conditions! It takes a special type of person to serve on one of those things.
BTW I served on surface ship; targets as the submariners call them. But as we surface combatants used to say, submarines are already half sunk

Was that an atomic powered submarine or the old diesel boat? The wife and I toured a WWII submarine in North Little Rock, AR. Cramped isn't the word to describe it. The young man was a walking encyclopedia about the boat.
1. The most dangerous place was over the storage batteries. Use your own imagination.
2. Shifts were around the clock so the bunk was occupied by two other bodies prior to your down time; showers were not a daily regimen.

Got to visit on both diesel subs here in Australia and on a nuke in the states (can't remember the name). But yeah, I don't know whether I could do the "hot bunking" thing
