Razorback Crewmembers Visit

In the last several days, three former Razorback crewmembers have stopped by to visit.

George Gallagher is a Razorback plankowner and was onboard for three of her five war patrols. The top photo is from his Razorback days. While he was aboard, he got to revisit his old bunk and one of his duty stations - the After Diving Plane controls.

Chief Mason was COB (Chief of the Boat) in the early 1960s and has been one of AIMM's biggest supporters.

Bobby Brittain (pictured above) was a Second Class Sonar Tech in the early 1960s and sailed with Chief Mason (they missed each other by one day). PO Brittain was nice enough to sit down for a few minutes and talk about his time on Razorback on the record. A transcript of his Oral History will be available soon.

As always, we GREATLY appreciate it when any sub vet takes time out of his busy life to visit, but we especially love it when former crewmembers stop by.
