I was stationed on the Bonefish (SS-582) from 84-88 and the Blueback (SS-581) 88-90. I was a QM2 upon discharge and currently live in Northern California. This looks like a great site and I hope you do well in accomplishing your mission. One of my missions is to get a Nuke boat in a museum on the West Coast.

Welcome Rick!  It must really be something to have a sub you served upon to now be a museum!

Do you happen to volunteer on any of the sub museum boats?

Glad to have you here!

I grew up in Yuba City, near Sacratomato. When I got out I came back here. I wish I could volunteer on a museum. The closest one here is the Pampanito and I really don't want to drive there. I am planning on making a trip to Portland and maybe volunteering there for a weekend. I have been there twice since the Blueback was opened there.

I am trying to open a museum here in Sacramento, but it has been slow going and hard to find support. I have a little onfo about that under another post titled NUKES. I figure it aint over till the obese lady sings.

Thanks!

Actually I grew up in San Lorenzo, south of Oakland, went thru livermore many times and almost went to work at the radiation lab after high school but got smart and went subs instead.
