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.
Answers to Last Friday's Submarine Questions of the Week are found in the naval commemorative cover above, which documented the event described. One reader responded and with total accuracy.
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!

Submarines are always silent and strange.

I may not be a Submariner but I have recruiter my fair share :)
