Naval Officer Set

Recommended Posts

My boss at a previous job was a submarine officer. The assistant boss was a sub officer also. When my boss heard that i collected insignia, he looked through his duplicates and brought these in for me.




He was an Annapolis graduate, as a Lieutenant, he chose Supply as his field and was assigned as Plankowner Supply Officer on the USS Olympia (SSN-717), a Los Angeles class fast attack boat. He told me how he came to be jump qualified, but i don't recall the details.


The assistant VP was assigned to one of the subs involved in the tapping of the Russian undersea telephone cable as told in the book Blind Man's Bluff.

"Airborne Submarine Supply Officer" - couldn't have been too many of those! Always nice to cool free stuff for the collection!
