-A Memorable Visit Back To Submarine School New LondonCT. Some 20 Years After Departure- THANKS TO: Mr. William Kenny - Naval Base, Public Affairs Officer, My Family and I had a wonderful time to remember. 

As time went by and my family grew up, I set out to inquire if I could bring my grown children to the U.S. Submarine School in
New London CT. I asked my family who would be interested in joining me for this return trip and both of my sons and my oldest son’s wife, father and mother-in-law and my own father-in-law all of us set out for what turned out to be a most rewarding and educational visit to the New London Submarine Base.
