    SSBN A Lincoln

    Byron:
    Just curious, what were the years you were deployed on the USS Abraham
    Lincoln? Interesting history here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Abraham_Lincoln_(SSBN-602)
    -- Richard Langley
    In 63 I was a surface QMC Chief on the USS Outpost, a surface radar Picket Liberty Hull. The Navy needed QM,S to board the new SUB'S SSBN. I volenteeded and was selected to the new sub,s. I went to the school to learn the new equipment.
    I had an avantage of knowing the surface Navigation over the others. I was graduated NO. one in the class. I had already developed the Franklin Piloting while on the Outpost in 1958 with a bad gyro. I was transfered to a sub that already had 4 QM Chiefs. They sent me to to a sub SSBN 602 that had canned their only chief, EX surface QMC, like me. I was under the gun for not being sub
    qualified. I was trained to stand the lead underwater Navigation watch.
    Only two stood this top secrect watch. 6 hour on 6 off for 2.5 months underwater,the idea was to keep where we were TOP Secrect. I qualified for sub pins in one patrol in 1963. Unusably quick. I got off the 602 in 65 because she was going to the yards in HI. I was transfered to OCS newport RI to teach Navigation to the new officers, coming in to the Navy.
