We Were Professionals

by Bob 'Dex' Armstrong

Let it be recorded that never in the history of U.S. submarines was there a combination like Adrian Stuke and Dex Armstrong for a two-way deck dump in a state five sea.

Once outside the sail door, they were poetry in motion... Armstrong's number two garbage-passer position was largely responsible for Stukey's five Golden Gloves playing principal dumper.

The seas rolled... The trash flew... And all was right on God's great ocean.
