We traveled full-time in an RV for three years after I retired from the Navy in 1979 and I worked many part-time jobs during that period. After our travels I worked several part-time jobs over a two-year period while we started building our new home.

Memories For This Unit

Other Memories
While attending the Instructor Training Course at Sub School I was asked to serve on that staff - which I did until I made Warrant Officer (WO-1) in June, 1970.

When I transferred from this command I was awarded the following Letter of Commendation:

takes pleasure in commending
for services as set forth in the following
For outstanding performance of duty while serving on the Staff of Naval Submarine School during the period of March 1969 to June 1970. As an instructor in the Instructor Training Branch, Chief Petty Officer McDERMOTT exhibited outstanding ability, initiative and resourcefulness. He was instrumental in revising the lesson plans of the most difficult lessons taught in Instructor Training School and spent many hours of research in the area of basic psychology. Chief Petty Officer McDERMOTT is extremely adept at counseling students and obtaining their best effort. Chief Petty Officer McDERMOTT's outstanding performance and devotion to duty have been in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
Captain, U. S. Navy
