As this page builds, I hope the information I provide is enjoyable, informative, and displays the immense pride I have for the U.S. Submarine Force. The men who continue to serve our nation under the world's oceans have my deepest admiration.
The work they do, the sacrifices they make, the hardships placed on their families, and the dangers they face on a daily basis make them true national heros.
They have my continued prayers for their safe return to port.
MAY THE NUMBER OF SURFACES ALWAYS EQUAL THE NUMBER OF DIVES.
