Answers to Submarine Questions of the Week
This Master Chief answered all questions including the bonus question accurately. Not a submariner, his identity is provided below.
1. Name the Italian president who visited subject U.S. submarine.
2. Name the submarine the Italian president visited.
3. Name the Naval station where the Italian VIP visit took place.
The answer to the Bonus Question (#4 below) is widely documented, but my favorite example is taken from a full-page National Distillers Products Corporation advertisement of the era, excerpted below, which mislabeled the commissioning ceremony as a 'launching' photograph.
4. What technology made subject U.S. submarine the first of its type?
Congratulations go to retired Master Chief Tom Goering for even getting the Bonus Answer correct - and Tom was one of our carrier sailors, not a submariner!
