Bottom Gun

I was a Gun Fire Control Technician.  Actually, since we didn’t have guns on the boats. I was a Torpedo Fire Control Technician.  I took care of the computers that aimed and fired the torpedoes.

We did a pretty good job, too.   The Canopus, the Washington, and the Vallejo each earned the Battle Efficiency “E” Award while I was aboard.  The Vallejo also won COMSUBLANT’s “Super E” for 1979. Now, we just call it “Bottom Gun.”
