Nobody's talkin' about the XO hanging himself from the Mach 1 hatch during a pre ORSE drill! Anybody remember that?

MMC Cheney relayed that incident to me in the mid-80's. He said it had happened on his first tour on the Madison, late 60's or early 70's?

Frank,
It was mentioned a while back in a thread about the "flooding " patrol but we just called it the machinery 1 incident. CMDR Clark became our new XO.

My first patrol as the Hospital Corpsman on the Blue Crew. What a way to get indoctricated into submarines. Was a very exciting day.

You did good work Doc. It gave us a lot of confidence in the new senior corpsman.
