Pat, I was mistaken. I have a picture of two LTV Scout's. One of them is closeup!

You'd think an old Polaris toting or protecting seaman would know the difference between a solid fuel booster (Scout/Polaris) and a liquid fuel AIR FORCE booster.

I served aboard fast-attack subs. I've never even been near a Polaris, Poseidon, or Trident missile. The only solid rocket propelled weapon we carried was the Thiokol SubRoc, a thermal nuclear convoy-killer that was shot horizontally from the torpedo tubes. It's kill radius was so large that chances are it would also take out the firing ship.

Um, yeah. We HATED carrying them. Carrying them meant we had to have a guard in the torpedo room, there were many ports we couldn’t visit, and there was always the possibility of a tritium leak. It was laugh riot.

Sounds like it could have been a real blast ...

Scary...and you didn't get to carry much extra underwear for those tritium leaks.

We submariners didn't wear underwear while at sea. We had one tiny washer and one tiny clothes dryer. Potable water was rationed almost constantly because the reactor drank up most of it. We washed only our poopy suits (black coveralls) and our socks.

We often reeked.

Glory days, baby!
