The US Navy lost two fine men last week during an open water, small boat transfer off the UK coast last week. Not to take away from the daily losses in the Middle East but two Submariners were killed topside on a U.S. Submarine due to going over the side in heavy seas. The Chief of the Boat and a First Class Petty Officer died doing their job. Both were friends and shipmates. Don't take heavy weather for granted, the COB and the STS1 that died as well as the CO, XO and the crew knew what they were up against; it dangerous out there - don't ever forget that!! This all happened within the sight of land!!
