Jiggs is safely seconded back in ComSubPac so things are pretty much back to normal , if ‘normal’ is ever a word
one can use regarding NIMR and Seaview. What is unusual is that Bill Corbett has actually been elected to Congress. Folks seem to have conveniently forgotten that the
former Lt. Cmdr. in the Navy was dishonorably discharged for disobeying orders
aboard Seaview during that fail safe debacle we
had awhile back. At the time, some civilian circles even called Corbett a hero. It remains to be seen if he’ll
have further changes of conscious while in office.
Lee thinks about the new Congressman is anyone’s guess. The problem with
Lee is that he’s honorable to the core but believes in second chances.
Even went to bat for Corbett prior to his altering the missile firing range to
‘show the world’ what nearly happened. Now, however, like me, well…I
think Lee simply wants to forget the whole thing and prays we’ll never have a fail-safe situation again. But we both
know that if we do, at least we two, Morton as well, will do our duty.
