Submarine Named for 'Gold' Crewman
In 2008, submarines have been placed in the global public's subconsciousness. As Charles Colton said, Imitation is the sincerest of flattery. [1820 C. C. Colton]
Baltimore native Michael Phelps has earned his legacy. Called the best Olympian ever on several occasions throughout the 2008 games, Phelps officially earned the title with his eighth gold medal.
Great analogy considering Phelps is only 23 years old, typical of youthful submariners. Hopefully, Groton's recruiting will be helped.
Does the name USS Phelps sound familiar to you naval historians, too?
Submarines are always silent and strange.
