Found this site by accident and enjoyed reading folks' entries. My dad was Joe Steele, who served on the Holland in the mid to late 70's, likely site one. Believe he was a chief at the time (I'll have to break out the old family albums and scan some of his photos that some of you are sure to be in).

He spent time on the Canopus, Hunley, and Los Alamos - all in Scotland. Went on a tour in Pearl Harbor around 1980 where he made warrant. He ended his navy career on the USS Waterford in Groton, CT as a docking officer in 1990. We stayed in CT ever since.

My dad passed away in 2006 and rests in section 64 in Arlington. We miss him always - a sometimes uncompromising man and always a loving dad, he made us who we are.

His navy days encompassed my entire childhood and still carry with me today. Best wishes to all of you who served with my dad! xo

Great duty. Me and a buddy strapped on backpacks, got a euro rail pass and were gone for two weeks in Europe staying at B&B's and just living the life. Bad thing back then was our short hair which gave us away as military but all was good. Trips to Glasgow on the train were fantastic and of course just hanging around in Dunoon. Hope to find "Buddy John" and "Mushroom"!
