Reporting Aboard the SSN-682
Written by Jim Dawson   
Jul 09, 2011 at 06:20 PM

I was a little bummed out when I got my orders after finishing prototype at NPTU Windsor. I was married and was told that a boomer was the best duty for a married guy, so I put in for a boomer out of Hawaii. NAVPERS said the best thing for me was a fast attack in Charleston. I soon realized being assigned to the Tunny was a much better option than anything else that could have happened to me, especially considering that the Ike was being built and a large number of my classmates were headed there.

TUNNY CO RESPONSE for Lee Ashcraft

Some time ago you requested assistance in preparing a chronology of the C.O.s of TUNNY.  By this time you may already have all you need, but I will be happy to add in any way I can.
I have written the following in somewhat narrative form from which you can use any part.  I have included Hugh Latham as info addee requesting that he confirm or correct the dates I have given.

The USS TUNNY (SSG-282) was a proud guided missile diesel submarine of the United States Pacific Fleet. This grand dame was honored by its' being the oldest "boat" in the Fleet when I was aboard in from 1958 to 1962.

I boarded TUNNY in June 1958 as a seaman apprentice at the age of 18 years while this vintage WW II submarine was moored at Yokosuka, Japan. At the time, I held grand visions of a brand new and exciting career as a submariner in an elite and honored service. Lieutenant Marvin S. Blair, US Navy, commanded the TUNNY at the time and the Executive Officer was Lieutenant Commander Douglas Stahl, US Navy.
