      While I was still in, the Connecticut pulled into Kingsbay. We got to take a tour of each other’s boat. The two boats are similar in age, but the Seawolf class was based on tech 20 years newer; seeing the tech that they had was interesting.
      Massive torpedo room, sooo many nifty things made out of titanium, and my biggest take away was that there was just one set of washer and dryer for 100+ crew. eww

        I’ve only been on one sub for a visit for about an hour and it was enough to tell me that I would never survive the experience if I had to be stationed on one (this was back when I was 16/17 and thinking about military careers)

          I did Navy Nuke because I had good scores and absorbed info quickly, but had no effing clue on what I wanted to do with my life. I did Subs vs Carrier because I could choose a Sub that had a home port vs always at sea (scores gave me a voting choice), and I liked a group of folks that I knew (150 ish folks vs 5000 ish).
          I’d get a short version of claustrophobia for only a day, to be matched with a short burst of agoraphobia when it was time to shift to land. (being 6ft 1in, I learned quickly where to duck). The smell that would permeate my clothes was the only real pain…… Think Ozone, BO, sweat, random farts, black water, assholes smoking cigarettes in a steel tube, and the sulfur from the machine oil. The name was “Boat Funk”, and *would not* wash out of your clothes.
          It was mostly like working inside a building all damn day (I’m not an outdoors type person). The only issue that I had was that if there was a yahoo that wanted to mess with you, you could only be no more than 560 ft away. I did not re-enlist because we invaded an unrelated nation for profit ( I might have been sold on Afghanistan, but Iraq an obvious profiteering)….
          I look back with nostalgia to deal with the equipment and the challenge, but then I have to remember the assholes that encouraged me to not re-enlist ( I was wearing the rank of an E6 in just over five years, and did not want to deal with the bull shit).
