MCPON On The Boise

Being Idaho's "first and foremost submarine blogger", I feel a special responsibility to post anything I find about the Idaho capital's namesake submarine, USS Boise (SSN 764). So, here's a picture the Navy NewsStand put out today of the new MCPON, Joe Campa, Jr., on the Boise during his first visit to a submarine since taking his new job:

It's a good shot of a 688 Crew's Mess for those who haven't seen one in a while.

Update 0011 05 August: Here's a picture of the MCPON meeting the boat's Chief Quarters in the Wardroom. I guess there wasn't enough room for a photo op in the Goat Locker.

BH, yes it was new to me, thanks. Am guessing the transparent buulkhead lockers are not reefer storage, do you know?

The transparent lockers are actually there so the roving watch can check equipment without having to open lockers right over people's laps. They are not an "official" storage location (paper towels and such were usually stored there on my boat). The reefer entry (one of them, anyway) would be behind the photographer down the passageway to his right.

The guy on the far left of the photo is named Byrd. My last name is also Byrd. I'm a mid 1970s boomer sailor on the Stoney J. It's nice to see other bubbleheads named Byrd
