Thanks, Dog, I have the book on my shelf but I haven't seen the video yet. Apparently my Oahu cable subscription doesn't show the full History Channel lineup either-- it's not listed. I'll keep an eye out for it!

Those two are apparently good at interviews. They managed to get several dozen submariners to talk for an article in a Chicago newspaper that they later expanded to the book. When I was assigned to SUBPAC staff, we had to sign specific agreements to not only not speak to them, but to alert NCIS as soon as we were contacted by them. Some staff members were even subject to polygraph questions on the subject.

Apparently they were very good at putting submariners at ease, getting us talking, priming the pump with safe familiar sea stories, popping a surprise question, and interpreting the answer from the looks on our faces... J.D. Von Suskil ("Darth Vader") was our Chief of Staff at the time, and he had no humor for or appreciation of the way they got his "contribution" to the book.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Re: Recurring dreams after ER ?

I'm still working but also have had the "forgot to go to class and now it's finals time and I don't even know where the classroom is." dream,

If you put any stock in dream interpretation (a good parlor game at least) FWIW:

dreams of classrooms indicate you are ready to learn something;

dreams of a j*b indicate you are either frustrated or satisfied and are working on fullfillment;

dreams of being lost or missing something indicate that you are lacking confidence somewhere in your life.

Happy interpreting!

I would not have anyone adopt my mode of living...but I would have each one be very careful to find out and pursue his own way, and not his father's or his mother's or his neighbor's instead. Thoreau, Walden
