The FBMs

I spent nearly all of my adult life in (first) Fleet Ballistic Missile submarines, and (second) their newer incarnation, Trident submarines. I sailed, in order, USS Tecumseh (SSBN 628)(Gold), USS Benjamin Franklin (SSBN 640)(Decommissioning Crew), USS Florida (SSBN 728)(Blue), and USS Georgia (SSBN 729)(Gold) and her conversion to SSGN 729.

While reviewing some of my old bookmarks I ran across the Goatlocker. I have linked to a very funny post in the past. On that site is a piece by an old shipmate of mine, The Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarine.
