                                    "The Submariner"
             
Only a sea-going submarine Sailor realizes the great extent an entire ship depends on him as an individual. To a landsman this is not understandable, to a surface Sailor it seems unjustifiable   and sometimes it is even difficult for those of us on a submarine to comprehend, but it is very true!
 
A submarine at sea is a different world in herself, and in consideration of the protracted and distant operations of submarines, the Navy must place a tremendous amount of responsibility and trust in the hands of those men who take such ships to sea.
 
In each submarine there are men who, in the hour of emergency or peril at sea, can turn to each other. These men are ultimately responsible to themselves and to each other for all aspects of operation of their submarine. They are the crew. They are the ship.
 
Serving on a submarine is perhaps the most difficult and demanding assignment in the Navy. There is not an instant during his tour onboard a submarine that a man can escape the grasp of  this responsibility. His privileges in view of his obligations are almost ludicrously small, nevertheless, it is the spur which has given the Navy its greatest mariners - the men of the Submarine Service.
 
It is a duty which most richly deserves the proud and time-honored title of ……….. Submariner.
