        Ooops! At least I got the first letter correct! Greyback had a terrible accident with SOF divers, the result of which spawned a new program that is to ensure diver/equipment safety. All US submarines now adhere to this program throughout design, construction, and operation. Much like Subsafe, and it works!

          A side-bare to that accident. As a member of our dive-locker aboard the YOSEMITE, our work-boat engineer (a non-diver, but wanting to get into the program), MRSN Bloomer, eventually got his chit approved for Dive school. Years later I learned that he was one of the Special Projects guys killed in that fouled up valve alignment in the hangar that did him and some other guys in. Bloomer was a squared away, hardworking type.

          He and I would spend off-hours in the Tenders machine and carpenter shop building models. Bloomer went from common air-breather, like me and most of the locker, to spooky gas-breather in a few short years. In his short life he saw some weird **** (Ivy Bells comes to mind).
