USS Alexander Hamilton

REUNITING SHIPMATES OF THE USS ALEXANDER HAMILTON, SSBN 617

Who remembers the depth that we reached on our deep dive during builders trials when we lost depth? The number that comes to mind is 1857 ft. 
Although I was on sonar at the time it got to busy to recall!
And what was the te difference between us and the Thresher sinking? If my memory is correct it was not over an hour!

No Charles, I don't remember the time difference between our flooding and the Threshers sinking. . I'm not sure I ever knew that

I was not aboard at the time (reported ~ Dec 63). But I think there were few of us who fully comprehended the dangers presented by our occupation. It was a privilege to serve with true professionals and the passage of time has given me a better appreciation of their abilities.
