    Hi, I did almost nine years in the submarine force, got out in 1991. Did two tours on two different boats (USS George C. Marshall SSBN 654 Blue and the USS City of Corpus Christi SSN 705 and two and a half years shore duty in Groton. I got hooked on snow plowing from the guy that sided my house (Dino aka Plowking35). Started out just riding shotgun just for shits and grins. Then I went through the big &quot;D&quot; and by that time had become really good friends with Dino. He helped me pick out my truck and it all snowballed from there.<p>B. K. Morley MS2(SS)<p><br>

    Its not to hard. After I left Maine I went to new construction at Electric Boat(no sea time there). I had to stop for 2 years when I went to the West coast, but now that I'm on shore duty again I got the oportunity to work for the same company I hooked up with before I went west. <br>Hey Diceman when were you on the 5 boat, I was there from 86 to 88.

    Ray, I was on the 5 Boat from June 89 thru May 91. You might have known a fellow shipmate of mine that went from the Marshall to the 5 Boat. QM2(SS) Ronald X. Smith from Atlanta.... The guy was a nut!
