Here is the crew I was to meet in February of 1967 at Fort Roscrans, Point Loma, San Diego.  When this photo was taken, I was either about to commence my active duty or already at Treasure Island awaiting orders that would take me to a submarine.  I was born in San Francisco, California and left for Active Duty from there.  

Those orders sent me to USS Diodon.  I was a week or so at Treasure Island and then I flew PSA down to San Diego.  I waited about a week in transient duty at the Submarine Base until Diodon came into port.  

Too bad that I could not have caught Diodon in San Francisco.
