Memoirs of the Flooding and Fire

Here is quite the most important picture taken of me. I felt so good to be alive. I had just come off USS DOLPHIN after the May 21st 2002 incident. I am in the center of the three sailors shown below.

Can anyone name all of the sailors in this picture?

I was on the "Los Angeles" class submarine "USS BATON ROUGE", so these video shots of ANOTHER "Los Angeles" class submarine really brings back memories.
