I often regret not studying engineering and going into subs. Instead I became a lawyer, which is a lot less fun.
I am a maritime attorney. The interest came from my father. Going out on those subs on dependents cruises was unbelieveable. That is before Captain Waddle parked his on a Japanese Trauler. I have friends in Pearl Harbor that claim that the fishing boat was a known spy boat. I have no idea if this is true or not, but I do appreciate all of you Navy guys and girls (except on subs) out there getting the job done. I know about the sacrifice. I didnt see my dad much when I was growing up. God bless.
I wasnt in the service. My father was. He was on the Dallas in the early days when it was being built and going through sea trials. I actually went to the world premiere of Red October in Waterford, CT. The navy rented out a theater and invited captains, vets, etc. to see the movie and they had the navy personnell there to speak about how they helped in making the movie. My father was out to sea, so I got to go with my mom. Ill never forget all of the dirty greenpeace hippies outside of the show. I used to love it when dad came home and the coasties would get to go arrest the hippies in their zodiacs.

"Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American." Patton's speech to the 3rd Army on the night before D-Day.
