Sub vets Continued from page 20 beaches. "One hundred and twenty-eight of us went in and only 28 came back out," Ventro recalled. "I was one of the 28, but that ended my career." It's just one of the many, many similar stories submarine veterans share. "We have a lot in common," said James Harlan, who serves as Commander of the Mid-Atlantic Base. Harlan, who lives in Salisbury, Md., served aboard the USS Turk (SS426) based in New London, Conn. belore moving on to boomers such as the USS George Washington. He later commissioned the USS Casimir Pulaski and then retired as a Machinist Mate First Class. Another member of the group, George "Buck" Warner, who serves as secretary of the group, began his career aboard World War II fleet boats, then went to "nuke" school and served aboard nuclear powered submarines, including the Thresher, which was lost off the Atlantic coast back in the 1960s. "I was reassigned two months before the Thresher went down," said Warner. "It was a terrible accident, but that's the risk we take." Warner explained that the Thresher crew had some prob- lems with silver solder joints on a five-inch sea water line. The fate- ful event occurred when one of those lines ruptured and flooded the engineering space. In an attempt to rise to the sur- face, the crew blew the main bal- last tanks and during the blow a reducer malfunctioned and sent the Thresher to its watery grave. The Mid-Atlantic Base is cur- rently celebrating the United States Submarine Veterans 100th anniversary. It wasApril 1 !, 1900 when inventor John Holland rolled out his first sub with an internal combustion, gas-powered engine. Since then, the submarine fleet has grown and with it the technol- ogy used to prowl the depths of the ocean. The Mid-Atlantic Base meets the third Saturday of each month with meeting locations rotated between Sussex County, Wilmington and Dover, where Harlan said they hope to find a permanent home. Anyone who served aboard a submarine is eligible for member- ship. Even those who didn't may join if they are interested in sub- marines and are sponsored by a full member. "We can even have a ladies auxiliary if we want to form one," said Harlan. Those interested in membership information can call Roger Reeves of Lewes, who serves as treasurer, at 945-2448; or Harlan at 410-546-0807. to Get It Done Right & Get It Done Fast. U.$.
