Given the scope of detail used in the "Submarine warfare and nuclear deterrence" section of the main United States Navy page, I believe that it deserves to be part of the "Submarines in the United States Navy" daughter page. This page is already linked to earlier in the article and the whole section seems out of place for an article about general US navy info. Arcimpulse 03:02, 14 March 2006 (UTC)


Regarding the escape training section: "Typically they are told to yell "I feel fine!" repeatedly". In the late 70's, we yelled "Ho ho ho!" (There was even a life-size painting of Santa in the briefing room), and then when you _surfaced_, the doctor in attendance would ask "How do you feel?", you'd reply as above, and then the command was given "Next man". I can't say if the author has misremembered this, or if it was changed. I'm not sure if any cite for this can be found other than direct experience of those involved.

I'm currently in Subscol and I never went through any sort of hyperbaric training? What is this madness? Nardman1 20:10, 2 December 2006 (UTC)


I removed a large part of the section Escape Training, which was a straightforward cut-n-paste of this article: dawkeye (talk) 22:05, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

SSBNs SSGN's[edit]

I think saying that SSBNs are ballistic missile submarines and SSGNs are guided missile submarines (in the "Composition of the current force" section) isn't enough. These acronyms certainly stand for something... which isn't available in the encyclopedic article. There should be no questions of the "what does this stand for" sort after reading an encyclopedia article. Amenel (talk) 21:29, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
