USS Thresher SSN-593

USS Thresher SSN-593

Fifty years ago yesterday, The Good Ship Thresher was lost with 129 good and true submariners.

I remember this on the evening news from Walter Cronkite. We got one station in the little town in NC Montana that I lived in.

The link in the title of the post is to the Dictionary of American Fighting Naval Fighting Ships.

Obscure and forgotten event to every one that does not ‘go down to the sea, in ships’

  1. As a submariner, I rode with the best. We were the beneficiaries of the lessons learned from Thresher. May they rest in peace on eternal patrol. Sailors, Rest Your Oars.

You may fire when ready, Gridley
