Seeking Information on USS Asheville[edit]

If you have any information on the USS Asheville (SSN-758) please send it to me at I would really like to complete the list of COB's, and Find out the Missing XO's Names.--Subman758 (talk) 05:16, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Unless there is reliable sources, I will get rid of this section for being unencyclopedic and unsourced. -MBK004 16:45, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I would also like to update the Awards section. Also if you have any pictures, and would like them posted, we can also do a Photo Gallery.--Subman758 (talk) 05:16, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

If you are a crew member of the USS Asheville, I welcome your input, but please respect this page. I am a former crew member of the Asheville, and I would like to keep this page up to Asheville Standards. Thank You.--Subman758 (talk) 05:16, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Remember what WP:OWN says. -MBK004 16:45, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Let's not kill the goose "Idioms: kill the goose that lays the golden eggs". . Compare this article with the flagship of the Los Angeles class--a ship that certainly has more publicly verifiable references than Asheville--and I think we can agree that some data without citations is still valuable. If we must, mark <fact, citation needed, etc.> so innocent readers will be warned, but at least the framework for improvement is in place.

Perhaps the roster of XO and Goat Locker are bordering on trivia, though. Respectfully Subman758, wikipedia might not be the best venue for your intentions (e.g.; is the roster of XO and Goat Lockers on other boats significant to you?) but I do appreciate your contribution.

I'm not Navy, I'm Air Force, but nevertheless, do you really think that publicly identifying your shipmates on something that can (and is) read globally by anybody is a good idea? If this were my unit my CO would have my hide for this. Just something to think about, fella. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:25, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Historical value?[edit]

Much of the narrative in the history section of this article is of no historical value. I question whether future generations will be enriched by the knowledge that on a day in August 1999, the crew ate hamburgers, or that in April 2000, they went swimming. Thest things may be true and relevant, but constitute a level of detail appropriate only for letters to Mom, not for an encyclopedia entry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:32, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
