Primary Canon Sources

External Information Sources

  • Nuclear Submarine Deep Dive – A video series on YouTube by SmarterEveryDay about US Nuclear Powered submarines, specifically the Los Angeles Class USS Toledo. This series includes the Under Ice Exercise in the arctic (ICEX), a tour of Toledo, an overview of the basic crew structure, and even technical info on torpedos, sonar, and more! I highly recommend that every member take a browse through this series but especially watch the video Boarding a US Nuclear Submarine.
  • Submarine 101 by Rick Campbell – Author who served on US Navy Submarines (SSBN & SSN) and reached the role of Executive Officer. This website provides a wonderful guide to life on submarines (including the Virginia Class) and has links to his books which are a wonderful source for learning the submarine lingo/life. Submarine 101 the description of submarine life is on his website and free and open use.
