The goal of this project is to document the stories of the men who served on the submarine USS Benjamin Franklin (SSBN 640) from 1963-1993.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Gary Christopher. I served on the USS Lafayette (SSBN 616) from April 1979-June 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.

  • Locating and linking profiles of men who served
  • Gathering stories of those who are still alive
  • Gathering the obituaries of those who have passed away

Did you or a family member serve on the USS Benjamin Franklin? Please post a message and link their profile to this page. If you have any photos or memories to convey, please do!
