Patch from my Fleet ASW School, San Diego, CA 1966
Qualified in Submarines on USS Diodon (SS-349) under the Yellow Sea on August 15, 1967
Your Web-Master then in 1969, TM2(SS) USN Submarine Reserve
The photo above was taken, as I recall, on board one of those covered Coaxain's Boats (1969, as TM2(SS), USNR).
This was just after I had completed a week end working in the Torpedo Shop on the Sub Tender USS Sperry or USS Nereus.
Another Reservist from my Submarine Reserve Unit 12-9, TM2(SS) Ruiz. I believe, snapped this photo. He was a photographer by trade, as I recall.
He took the photo as we were returning to shore from the tender, which was moored out in the water at Fort Roscans, Ballast Point Submarine Base, San Diego, California.
