Tinker Video Sailors Creed 

It was so awesome to be back to Naval Submarine Base New London.   You guys were AWESOME!  One of the highlights of my life, getting to perform and present to some of our smartest and bravest sub school students! Your response still rings in my head.   Described as the Navy’s “first and finest submarine base”, the base ensures and enhances national security by providing the facilities, delivering the services, and creating the environment for the Fleet, Fighter, and Family to: deploy combat-ready submarines and their crews and train professional submariners. Once again, hats off to USFF for making this all possible!
