That was a great link! Thanks! Bless Tommy Cox indeed. Great voice to tell the stories. Thanks again mylife.
God bless Tommy, indeed. He is one of the few true submariner troubadours. It's important to know a few things about Tommy: a) he was what we boat sailors called a 'spook' or 'rider', i.e., he wasn't part of ship's company; b) he's one of the few spooks to actually complete submarine qualification and earn the coveted silver dolphins badge; c) I'm pretty sure he earned those dolphins aboard Whitey Mack's Lapon.
Those songs are from the heart because Tommy Cox LIVED the events he sings of. I'm proud to have a signed CD of his, because he rode one of MY boats too.
