A short slideshow of our Submarine Base tour

Another with SMILES

I had the honor of meeting Paul and Blanche Casavant at the reunion in Groton. They had traveled by train from their home in Florida to attend our USS Tusk reunion. Paul joined the navy in December 1941 went to boot camp in Newport, RI, graduated Sub School and made 9 patrols on the Narwhal (SS167) and Gabilan (SS252). Including  WWII, Paul served on 8 boats (Tusk 1947-51, aboard during the Cochino crew rescue) and the Shangri-La (CVA 38) retiring in 1969. He made EMC(SS) 3 months before I was born. Folks, while I've been working on the Tusk website I've had the pleasure of corresponding with a few WWII submarine veterans, this was the first time I actually got to shake one's hand. I'll never forget it.
