was on the 660 for her last deployments and decommissioning. Thank you for
sharing this story. This would be a great one to post in the “USS Sand Lance
(SSN-660) Facebook page. If you are on FB, please search for and join the
group. I just started it a few weeks ago so there are not very many folks in
there, but it should start growing soon
We very much appreciate this input.

A non refueling overhaul was completed at Portsmouth, commencing in 1975. However, since she had steamed more than any other sub in the Atlantic for the previous 3 years, a year after the non refueling overhaul she went back in somewhere to be refueled (several years early). I left as she went into the non refueling overhaul. Bob Bovey could tell you where the refueling was done.
Just thought I would try to set the record straight.
