From out of the Deep to Target 1

The message to the President of the United States from the USS George Washington upon the successful completion of the first Polaris missile launch came after the boat’s first shot  was ” From out of the Deep to Target X Perfect”

For all of my shipmates; I wonder how many got to shoot one of the birds we drilled so hard to support?

Once upon a time my qual boat got to do the deed. As amazing as it was, it was also a close brush with what could have been. It scared me a bit. Maybe it still does when I think about the awesome power one boat could hold.
