Boys In The Band Ordered... Boat Pages

I've always liked stumbling across a boat page -- web sites devoted to a single submarine, usually put together by an former crewman, that serves as a gathering spot for shipmates from across the years. Some are for old diesel boats -- like the one for USS Wahoo (SS 565) -- and some are for the nuclear boats, like this one for USS Hawkbill (SSN 666), or this one for USS Atlanta (SSN 712). One of the better ones I've seen for the LA class boats is this one for USS Groton (SSN 694). The Submarine Sailor website has a good collection of links to boat pages; however, many of the links aren't active anymore. As a general rule, the decommissioned boats are more likely to have an active boat page.

That's why I was excited to see that there's a new boat page on the 'net for USS Jacksonville (SSN 699), which is just about to finish up her DMP in Portsmouth, according to the last info I've heard. It looks like the page is off to a good start, so head on over and check it out!

(While looking around for links for this post, I stumbled across this page that serves as a gathering spot for old sub-riding CTs. Looks like it might be interesting. Reminded me of the time we almost ran out of food on USS Topeka, and made up a list of the CTs we were going to eat first...)
