Keeping the blogosphere posted on the goings on of the world of submarines since late 2004... and mocking and belittling general foolishness wherever it may be found. Idaho's first and foremost submarine blog. (If you don't like something on this blog, please E-mail me; don't call me at home.)

It's Battle "E" Time!

If it's early January, it must be time for the Battle "E" winners to be announced! The SubLant winners are posted over at Martini's BBS; I'll come back after the Orange Bowl and convert it to a more readable format, unless I can find someone else who already did that, in which case I'll just steal it from them (with suitable acknowledgement, of course). If anyone happens to have the CSP list, and could send it to me, that would be really great...

Staying at PD...

Update 2325 03 Jan: The Orange Bowl (a 3OT, badly-played affair) finally ended, so here's the promised list. I've added a hyperlink to each squadron's SubGru page so you can see which boats are in which squadron:

CSS-2: NR-1
CSS-4: USS Miami (SSN 755)
CSS-6: USS Scranton (SSN 756)
CSS-8: USS Newport News (SSN 750)
CSDS-12: USS Memphis (SSN 691)
CSS-16: USS Rhode Island (G) (SSBN 740)
USS Rhode Island (B) (SSBN 740)
CSS-20: USS West Virginia (B) (SSBN 736)
USS Wyoming (G) (SSBN 742)

For completeness, the LantFlt boats not on the squadron pages are the subs that are in the yards, assigned to SubGru TWO. Of note, USS Miami, USS Memphis, and USS Rhode Island (Gold) also snagged the Engineering Red "E" for their squadrons, which I think exempts them from Squadron monitor watches for the next quarter. (Not really, but they really should consider that.) There are also some other awards listed in the message, but, speaking as a former Eng, the "E"s are really the ones that matter.
*Ducking to avoid thrown objects*

Yeah, because that whole tactical "T" and Nav "N", that has nothing to do with ship's mission ;-) Of course, I am just grumpy, we got the Battle "E", with the "T", "N", and Red "DC", but we never scored the Red "E".

Thanks for the list, though - it let me see that my old boat has two of my former classmates as Dept. Heads. Not that the commodore appreciated me sighing over that - she was just starting to think I was done missing the boat ;-)
