  1. I’m still amazed how the engineering allows a missile to be fired from underwater. Like I understand the process , a rocket engine burns seawater into steam and the missile rides a steam column all the way up and out of the ocean . Even still it’s an unbelievable engineering achievement to propel a missile that weighs many thousands of pounds . 30 or 40 ft out of the water from 60 ft under the ocean surface . Just think about that for a second . That’s unbelievable!

  2. Respect and appreciation to our current submarine sailors from a nuc attack submarine sailor (1970-1976).
    One can tell from how these men talk they are very knowledgeable and professional in what they do.
    God Bless our Navy nuclear submarine crews…

  3. The guy is wrong when he says thay no one individual can be an expert on everything about the boat….if you don't then you will not qualify for your dolphins, and more often than not you will be transferred off the boat and the Navy will put you somewhere else.
    This will also go on your permanent record too.

  4. they're the best deterrent against another nation nuking us…a bunch of submarines, each with the capacity to level every major city in an adversary nation… and they dont know where we keep them when deployed.

  5. Soooooo not long ago,, a young man took a signal picture insife his submarine because he was a proud American Patriot. He was then dishonorably discharged and sent off to prison for disclosing secret materials.. Does this mean everyone in this video is now a criminal.???

  6. I noticed that HM1(SS) Romero isn't wearing his dolphins. When I was in, and as soon as I qualified in submarines, I made sure that my dolphins that I worked hard for were always on me. I would rather wear a uniform without my name on it then wear one without my dolphins. Hopefully, he fixed his uniform after the interview.
