Dean Adams,

CONGRATULATIONS on being awarded your silver dolphins!

Wear them with pride, and always remember the wonderful heritage of the submariners that have gone before you in the past 102 years.

I still remember when the USS REMORA (SS 487) pulled into San Diego in 1961 from a seven month WestPac deployment and every enlisted man on board was wearing his silver dolphins. We flew a special flag from the #2 periscope to let the world know of our achievement.

I was one proud skipper.

Bob Thomas, Capt, USN (Ret) (San Diego)
