I've only been in a track a handful of times, one being extracted from a raid in the middle of the night and we made shore to ship movement. It was definitely not cool nor fun.

RIP Devils.

Damn. RIP Marine.

We had a AAV sink off the coast of MCBH in 2003. We were splashing tracks at the end of RIMPAC. A bunch of us were standing on the fantail watching their entries. One of them went in and submerged (like usual) and just never came back up. All three Marines aboard surfaced a minute or so later. IIRC, the finding was that the sea cocks weren't closed before they splashed, so as soon as they went in it filled up with water.
