Ken Einig
01/07/09
I just spent the evening here after a day working at Los Alamos cruising through your Snook website and I just wanted to say hi and congratulate you on this nice blast from the past. I was on Snook for a short time in 1972 and had some memorable experiences. I was an IC3 non-qual just learning the ropes during the Bremerton overhaul and I remember waking up after hitting the floor of the forward torpedo room when Snook hit that uncharted seamount. I also remember Cdr Cossey inviting me up in the sail for a wonderful view of the boat under nuc power. I remember some faces including yours , Dackos, Rybak, Craig, and of course Chief Costa. Who was that young skinny guy who tried to get off the sub after doing something stupid like hammering an escape hatch with a crescent wrench while underway. Do I have that memory correct?

Thomas Staub
8/4/08
I was on Snook from March/April 1981 through June 1983. I was a MS3(SS). One thing I remember is doing 2 six month deployments in 18 months. I was also a very junior sailor that had a lot of responsibility during the 2+ years I was on board, we spent a lot of time at sea those years. Disposing of trash at sea was an experience I won’t ever forget. Food storage was also a challenge for us on Snook, finding the right food was a challenge because of limited space available. But my experience in the Navy was a good one. After Snook I was assigned to PCU Georgia were I developed professionally as Chef.

Wayne Peters
I went to sub school with John Halloran before going to Sculpin as Engineer. My CO on Sculpin felt tours as both Engineer and Navigator/Operations Officer would be good for my career. So, I asked to go to Snook after Sculpin since I knew John would be leaving soon. During my short time on Snook, I joined the ship in the Mediterranean at the start of the deployment where I relieved John. Jim Lynch was in command. I made a second Mediterranean deployment before transferring. This time Wayne Olsen was in command. After Snook, I went to be XO on Sam Rayburn. I retired from my position as Chief of Staff for Commander, Submarine Group Two at the end of 2001.
Clarke Orzalli
