As a veteran of four deployments on Permit class boats, I’m very pleased to see 594’s on the list. Perhaps I was a glutton for punishment, but having ridden both the Permits and LA class subs, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for those ships.
That and having deployed with one of the best skippers I ever had, John Grossenbacher.
Too bad the whole class has been scrapped. I probably shaved with part of one this morning.
