Four Razorback sailors from the sixties recently reunited in Arkansas aboard the USS Razorback. From left to right- Enrile Trinidad EMCM (SS) USN (ret), Marcial M. Pamintuan, SD2 (SS), Dom "Big Al" Alvarado, SD2 (SS) and Ireneo Alcala, SD3 (SS) enjoy a moment after touring the 394. Each remembered where they slept and what they did in vivid detail thanks to the complete nature of the submarine. Alcala resides in Illinois and the others live in California.

After spending time aboard and being interviewed by the local media, the group then went through the museum where Alvarado and Trinidad discovered their photos and signatures in several of the displays. They were very pleased to be among the very first visitors to the museum building.

They also did a two-hour interview with Sandra Taylor-Smith and Cary Bradburn of the North Little Rock History Commission. Taylor-Smith and Bradburn have been compiling notes from interviews with Razorback sailors for ultimate publication. If you are a Razorback sailor they would like to hear from you. E-Mail them at
