    Default Us navy build up during the cold war

    Its interesting to note the build up of the US NAVY during the cold war in ships and submarines. My

    father worked at Electric Boat in Groton, Conn. from 1957-1963 as a welder working on submarines on

    the second shift. I remember we picked him up at work at the shipyard around mid night and there was

    a lot of workers coming out to buses,cars,etc. There was a real sense of urgency to gain the upper

    hand on Russia [ six and seven days a week and sometimes 12 hours a shift ]. He worked on the George

    Washington the first polaris submarine [ converted from an attack submarine ].

    Also at this time there were many shipyards involved in building submarines. Such as Portsmouth Navy

    Yard in Kittery, Maine , Electric Boat, Newport News Shipyard, Ingalls Shipyard, and Mare Island Navy Yard.

    The US Navy yards modernized the old destroyers [ 110 of them] in the FRAM program to cope with

    Russian submarines and get an extra 10-15 years of service life. The Navy yards also converted gun

    cruisers to guided missile cruisers saving time and money. There are only 3 Navy Yards left now Pearl

    Harbor, Puget Sound Navy Yard, and Norfolk Navy Yard. Since 1965 those noted and gone are Brooklyn

    Navy Yard, Boston Navy Yard [ where I worked 1967-1973] , Hunters Point Navy Yard, Long Beach Navy

    Navy Yard, Mare Island, Charleston Navy Yard, and Philadelphia Navy Yard. These same Navy Yards all ten

    of them made huge contributions in ships and submarines during WW 2.

    I think the biggest build up was Reagan's so called 600 ship Navy.
    IN the days of lace-ruffles, perukes and brocade
    Brown Bess was a partner whom none could despise
    An out-spoken, flinty-lipped, brazen-faced jade,
    With a habit of looking men straight in the eyes
    At Blenheim and Ramillies fops would confess
    They were pierced to the heart by the charms of Brown Bess.
