One of the first submarines my dad served aboard was the USS TRIGGER (SS 564) out of Charleston. She was a diesel electric submarine-hunter primarily. I think my dad was first in charge of the engine room. The ship was named after a submarine that was lost with all hands in WWII. Here we have a picture of the boat while on a visit to Italy in 1963, and two shots taken from the periscope, probably by my father. Have no idea where the sunrise/sunset was taken, but the shot of the ship was taken in the Savannah River.
