As most of you know I was in the Navy for some 20 years . I was a torpedo-man first class . I was station mostly on the west coast . I spent most of my time in the Philippines & Japan . This is a view of the weapons I worked on . You mostly have seen them in war movies ? But I got to worked on them first hand. When I was in Japan I did get to work for a few months with the Japanese Navy . We were giving them some of our mark 46 torpedoes and I got to train them on the maintenance & testing on them .
it was a great time of my life and I miss it . I think the best was when we had to put out the exercise shots for the subs & destroyers ? This is when we could see just what how the torpedoes worked in the water & in the hunt . The exercise shots had a camera in the head and recorded every thing they did in the hunt & the kill ?
You are going to miss it Charles,you would travel to different places,and still have your Navy pals,its like you once told me you still wait for your orders to come through,you had a active and interesting job .enjoy yourself now. Angela
love your self
aperdan most of the info that is posted here is found on the net . I must say in the service I did hold a Top Secret clearance . As of then and now I cant talk about what we did but we can say what we worked on . When I was married ( my wife has past on ) there were times I went on a job I couldn't tell her . She didn't like it but new this was what she had to put up with ? She new she not only married me but the Navy as well .
