QM2 -I swapped over to the OKC from the USS Ouellet as a QM3. I made QM2 while onboard. I was there in 1978 - 79. Almost crossed deck to the Blue Ridge in Yoko but realized I was sailing on a piece history, so I rode her back to the US for decommissioning. It was bittersweet. I got out of the Navy and went in the Merchant Marine. I sailed another 35 years and retired as second officer.

^^^ Great crew. We used to have some wicked basketball games over at Huntington Hall. Jason Breen, Patrick Milan, Lee B. Thompson were my running mates in addition to all of the sonar gang. Went on to make Chief in 1988, end up as an ACINT Rider. Retired in 2002. Became a math teacher and am currently the principal of Stonington High School in CT. Loving life.
