"Engines Forward
- Burkholder!"
1967

 
 


Thursday, 19JAN61. U.S. Naval Submarine Base, New London, CT. Sometime between midnight and 03:30. A typical night aboard Archerfish. Duke Durgin is the Duty Officer, a battery charge is in progress, Larry Dachenhausen is the Throttleman in the Forward Engine Room, a goat is chained to the ladder in the After Engine Room, and Robby Roberts has the charge in Maneuvering Room. ("Greasy Joe" Osier introduces the goat to Williams in the After Room & "Red Dog" Balthrop compares beards with the goat in the mess hall.)

For the whole, "this is no shit", true story as rememberd by those who were there, read : "The Goat on the Boat"
