    A friend and coworker of mine is a retired navy captain. He commanded a couple of fast attack subs, one of which was the USS Pasadena. Another friend of mine has a son-in-law who is a nuc instructor in NY. He's also a submariner.

    i thought the helicopter i worked on (CH53E) was big until i had to load two of them into a C-5. they JUST fit, i mean inches, and thats after we tear them halfway down and stuff em inside.
