Comments I served on 4 boats and a tub (HOLLAND). But The Grant was by far my favorite. Still have friends from almost 40 years ago that I talk to over social media. Fantastic crews. MT Div was the best of all my other boats.

Comments I learned today that Capt. Bartlett L. Clark XO, 1977-1981 passed away several years ago. I am very sad about learning this as I had the utmost respect for him. The professional XO-MDR association that I had with him was exceptional. He allowed every opportunity for me to excel and I always had his support. We often had personal conversations which revealed a Naval Officer with insight and compassion to assume command of a submarine. He became CO of the USS Omaha. He once told me that he was born too late as that he would liked to have been on subs during WWII. His "hero" was Red Ramage. It is certain that all of us will die; however, this knowledge does nothing to temper the sadness that can be felt upon the loss of someone held in the highest regard and with a trace love thrown in. My sentiments for XO B> L> Clark.

Rank/Rate STS3(SS)

Comments Sorry to report Mark L Walker passed away August 25th, 2019 in Leander Texas. I found out a week before his funeral and did not know he was a Grant crew member till the funeral. He did not have any local family members but when the community found out he was a military member they rallied and funeral expenses were donated by the local vfw. Hundreds of people showed up for both the funeral in Leander Texas and burial in Killeen at the Veterans Cemetary ! He was a sonar tech and must have been on the blue crew as I was a sonar tech on the gold crew probably on same time frame! He was 58 years old and died of natural causes according to the news. I will send pictures but the proceedings were on the local news.. Thursday September 26th 2019
