Tom Rhea, Jr. Monday, November 22, 2004 4:43:03 PM I was the ET LPO (Forward) on SSN-681 from '76 until January '80 and did my initial quals aboard her. I've been trying to get a handle on my former mates and talk over old times, and was wondering if any of the 681 crew evermade it to any of the 310 reunions. Being an Oklahoman myself, I've watchedwith great interest about 310, both her trials and triumphs while in Muskogee, and would hope that the 681 sailors would come to her aid andshare in her story.
John R Cannon Saturday, October 21, 2006 11:42:58 PM I am plank owner of Batfish ssn681. Just wondering if any more of the original crew is still out there. Served on board from 1972 until 1976.
Mark Long Wednesday, November 15, 2006 2:16:31 PM I attended the 2006 Reunion and the original and 2nd commissioning crew welcomed me with open arms.  Need more people from the 681 in 2007.  I'll be there.
