NAMPA, Idaho (PRWEB) February 19, 2018
Chris Thompson, a farm boy who joined the US Navy and went into submarine service during the end of the Vietnam War, a seaman gang group leader, a “striker” for A-Gang as a machinist’s mate, and a dedicated Navy serviceman, has completed his new book “Stories on a Submarine”: a riveting anecdote of the author’s background in service of the country by being a member of the US Navy Submarine Service.
Author Thompson shows that despite being burdened by work pressure, one can find ways to lighten up and have a little fun to ease the tension: “Such was the birth of the pool begun two days before we pulled into port in Mayport FLA. during the famous ‘flex-ops’ for boomers late in the ’70’s. Ten dollars got you in. Your job? Find the ugliest woman you could with in eight hours of the commencement of liberty and return with her to the Peppermint Lounge near the base gate by 1600hrs. The Peppermint lounge was known for its line of male entertainment better understood as strippers. The originator of the pool was familiar with the area as his wife and her family were locals. Mind you, he was 100% faithful to her as far as I know, even under circumstances I thought were outside the realm of self-restraint. He had his strategy all lined up though, and it was TOP SECRET. Another in my division was in the pool and he, known as the dwarf for reasons other than his height, had his own strategy. In any event it was sure to be a contest you didn’t want to miss as the competitive spirit overtook the entire liberty section.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Chris Thompson’s absorbing story is also a touching appreciation for the people who dedicated their lives to serve and protect the country. Over the course of nine years while at sea, Thompson finally shares his experiences in the hopes of inspiring others with his life.
