one has done more to prevent conflict - no one has made a greater sacrifice
for the cause for Peace - than you,
proud missile submarine family. You stand tall among our heroes of the Cold
War." - General Colin Powell
...to the home of
a former member of the blue crew of the USS Daniel Boone SSBN 629. Jack
Dent served from 1965-1968 as a TML2(SS) (Torpedoman's Mate, Second
Class). He earned his Dolphins on November 23, 1966. He was a Missile
Launch Control Center Supervisor and Conventional/Nuclear Weapons Handling
In the pages of
this site, you'll find stories from the "good old days" on
patrol, a history of the Daniel Boone and the era when she was one of
the boomers known as the "Forty-One for Freedom." The Daniel
Boone was the first Missile Submarine in the Pacific, and was stationed
in Guam, M.I. There were significant protests held by Japanese citizens
over the presence of the Daniel Boone so near to their homeland.
Take a peek at Dent's
trip to the dedication of Deterrent Park at Bangor Submarine Base in Washington
state. Don't forget to sign the guestbook, and if this site has whet
your interest in all things submarine, check out the links page for
other great sites.
We're deep in the
process of remodeling, and have some exciting plans for the future,
so please check back often! You can skip over to the site map to see
what we're working on - don't be surprised that not all of the links
work yet! Do you have a name idea for the guestbook, message board or
community pages? Please e-mail the webmaster!
I created this site
for my dad for Father's Day 2000. Although I grew up hearing a few of
his hilarious stories about his Navy days, I never realized how much
he treasured the time - maybe having reached that age myself and seeing
my little brother getting ready to join another elite military group
(oo-rah!), helped me understand. As we toured the submarine memorial
at Deterrent Park earlier this year, I began to get an idea to have
a place for dad to share his memories.
My dad has given
me so much over the years, always encouraging me to develop my talents
and pursue my interests, and now I'm "all grown up" and in
the web design biz with the ability to produce this site for him. So
please enjoy this tribute to my dad, the submariner. Click
here to read a poem I wrote for him that tells you what kind of
a father and man the submariner grew into.

the strongest brothers
can be brought to their knees
with a small twist of wing and flicker of fuel
girders and glass - even these -
can be bowed by the
tongue of fire
and even fire
can be eaten by the depth of steel
even a country can cry
over not only the chaos of the past
but the trembling of the future
when the tender tenacity of the world
is pulled away as easily
as a knife through flesh
shall then our trust be in glass and girders?
or even in fire that licks the ashes?
or shall our strength be found in spirit
and our security found in faith?
for miracles can be found even on the 82nd floor.
