The goal of this project is to honor the men who served aboard the 41 Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarines from 1958 until 2002.

I am Gary Christopher. I served aboard USS Lafayette from 1979 to 1982.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Create and link projects for each of the 41 for Freedom submarines
  • Gather sea stories from those still living
  • Gather life stories from those still living
  • Gather obituaries from those who have departed on eternal patrol

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

Cool project idea - if you haven't posted about it in G2G yet, you might want to. It would help attract interest.  :)
