Web-Master's Comment

I have been able to get the following photos & stories from my qualification submarine, USS Diodon (SS-349) shipmates and in searches of the internet.  Mostly Submariners are listed, since that is where I have found most places on the internet where TMs are to be found.

If you are an Air or Surface TM, please send me stories and photos to share here on.

If Human Click shows status ONLINE,
I, your webmaster, may be available to chat directly with you via Keyboard to Keyboard, if you click on the Icon.  If I do not reply, please send me a message, since I am not really available. 

I will reply to your email and let you know where to email me or land wise mail me your stories & photos
