Bump in The Night
Subject: Genuine Sea-Story (listen up fellas)
Here is a sea-story comprised of some e-mail exchanges involving a USS NATHANAEL GREENE (SSBN-636) patrol in 1974. Our Columbus Base Shipmate Dave Creekmore was a crewmember of the Blue Crew aboard that vessel during that period. Following is the Tom Carr exchange of e-mail messages that make up a very interesting account of a very concerning incident known only to the Russians at that time.
An interesting series of emails has past through my computer in the last couple of weeks. Rather than try to summarize the content where I might change the intent or read “between the lines”, I feel that the emails make record enough. This is an amazing story that must be shared with the crew of the 636. Tom Clancy couldn’t write this and Hollywood couldn’t produce it, reality exceeds fiction again. Gentlemen, this is why the USS Nathanael Greene Reunion Association was formed! Tom Carr
