Greetings shipmates!


As most of you know I cancelled this website in September, 2016 due to an insane price increase that went up 35 times what I was paying.  I recently received an email from Ning saying that they were under new management and I can reinstate the website for the original price.  

Send any inquiries to me directly at stribble60@gmail.com

Hello former shipmates of the USS Alexander Hamilton, SSBN 617 - or sometimes affectionately known as the A. FROG! I was a Missile Technician on the Gold Crew from 1979 to 1984. If I only knew just how fast the years would blaze by after what seemed like patrols that would never end. I feel fortunate to have survived those days - not so much the patrols, but those very intoxicating off crews! I am thankful that many of us have remained in touch over the years, but wanted to do my part in helping others reunite. After all we are not getting any younger.

There are a few websites with information on our submarine (see links at the bottom of this page). One that deserves headlines though has been around for a while and is worth a visit. Add yourself to the crew while you are there. Here it is:

http://www.ssbn-617.com/crew.htm

 

There is also a Facebook page for the boat, so make sure you visit there as well.


Feel free to invite other shipmates that you may know. Make sure you share a sea story or three by using the Forum tool on the left side of this page. Also feel free to add photos - past and present. Many of you have photos from the boat that we would love to see, so break out those scanners and start scanning those photos. I have added a lot of photos from the boat that I have scanned and uploaded here. I gave descriptions to each photo (mainly to name the people in them), but my memory is like a steel sieve and I have forgotten some of the names. Help me out in that endeavor by letting me know the names that I have forgotten .


By the way - in the photos you see on the sides of this page you will see the Hamilton when it was in drydock during a cold winter in Holy Loch, Scotland. That is former shipmate Bruce Johnsen (MT) standing on the wingwall of the drydock.

Gold Crew Patrol 53 Crew List (Summer 1981)

I have been fortunate enough to have recent contact with former Gold crew Captain Sam Badgett.  He provided me a crew list for the Gold Crew Patrol 53 (Summer 1981).  There may be a few typos, but it still brings back memories.  I made a couple of minor corrections in parenthesis and in red font, but not guaranteeing I am correct.

Good luck!
