Day 174: J.P.

J.P. lives next to my sister Melissa down in Austin.  He's an old Navy man who lived on a diesel submarine off the coast of the Soviet Union back in 1961-1964. They were loaded with nuclear weapons as a deterrent against a Soviet attack on America. The first of their kind.  These were remote controlled cruise missile nukes launched from the top deck of a surfaced sub.  Not the later Polaris missile which was fired from beneath the water.  Very interesting guy.
