    I was on the first Polaris program, aboard the SSBN 602 Sub, Like the
    Time pieces we had 3 Inertial navigators, I was a qualified operator.
    We were under water for 2.5 months at a time and alway knew were we
    were for fire control missle launch. Again this required operators
    constant knowlege and attention with very, very little and almost no
    outside information. Orders we were to proceed undetected. They are
    even better now.
