For Your Weekend Reading Pleasure

The Summer 2006 Undersea Warfare magazine finally got posted. This issue looks pretty good; in addition to the annual "Force Organization Map" (listing boat's homeports and COs as of August 2006), there are articles on SSGN capabilities, SEALs and submarines, and submarine "Docs".

Happy reading!

Had a look at the Force Organisation Map to see if there were any names I'd recognise. The CO of the Jax sounded familiar - wasn't he a JO when I was on Jax? So I googled a little, and discovered that it was indeed the same man. And not only that - between his JO tour on Jax and his CO tour on Jax, he'd also done an XO tour on Jax.

Talk about masochists.... 8)

CDR Kropcho was in my SOAC class; I had remembered that he'd done his JO tour on JAX, but I hadn't known about XO -- it's really out of the norm to have an officer do three tours on the same boat (outside of the Ocean Engineering boats, of course.)
