Was it actually published without due dilligence? It certainly appears that way, but such may not be the case.
Submariners will find a telling remnant of censorship (or self-censorship) in the article, along with some "out of school" commentary.
The curious can read more about Tautog's collision with the Black Lila in the Blind Man's Bluff collection of unofficial submarine stories and anecdotes here, etc. on the web.
Dunn, was the Terrible T's QM1(SS) at the time of its collision. Should we expect to hear from one of its torpedomen next?
Quoting Admiral (Bruce) DeMars: "We belonged to a very elite group," Dunn said.
Eliteness applies every bit as much today, although too many now attempt to portray today's submariners as sanctuary seekers, combat cowards or ultrasafe cruise ship sailors for VIPs and dependents. I bid you ask yourselves when and what started these flagrant misconceptions.
How did such nonsense originate in an extraordinarily honorable service of men so fearless they had been thought insane?
Could the balderdash underly persistently ill-advised attempts to assign women sailors to submarines? You be the judge. Both this article's author and one of Blind Man's authors are female journalists who don't seem to be buying into that sort of folly.
