"My tour of duty aboard the "Cubby" was in 1956 and 1957. Our home port was in Norfolk, VA and involved in many exercises up and down the East Coast. We were also frequent visitors to Cuba. It was very interesting to see mentioned some of the ole shipmates. The skipper, LCDR Dietzen, was known to be an Admiral and was assigned to the Pentagon in the early 70's. This is an excellent article on the USS Cubera and the pictures bring back old memories. My rating was RM2, Horace Lewis was the Lead Radioman. I recall that my bunk was located in the forward torpedo room, above one of the torpedos. "
