Ohio Class Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarine & USCG Escorts, Strait of Juan de Fuca

Photographed from the Victoria to Port Angeles Ferry, 2009


My steel tube was a Lafayette Class Polaris boat but the mission is still the same – never use them

Their weapons are indefensible and the consequences beyond comprehension

Victor 82

On 7 Dec. 1941, an act of war resulted in the flight of this aircraft, 6 Aug. 1945

My war was later, conducted in a different metal tube. Underwater.

It was a Cold War.  Had it been otherwise is unimaginable.
