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.
