Sub Decommissioning USS SEAWOLF (SSN-575)

Recommended Posts

My Brother was assigned to this Sub when it was decommissioned. My Parents, Brothers and Sisters all got invites to it. I didn't attend but had one Brother who did. thought it was kind of neat so thought I would share. My Father was in the Navy in WWII and three of my Brothers were also in, I was the rebel and was in the National Guard for 21 yrs with 6yrs active. Hope you enjoy

Very nice. I was at Mare Island when they decommissioned the Nautilus but they didn't invite a lowly USMC Pvt !
