Years ago my brother served aboard the USS James K. Polk. For those of you that don’t know the James K. Polk was a ballistic missile submarine of the United States Navy. She was converted from a ballistic missile submarine to a slow attack submarine. This conversion included the removal of her missiles and the adding of dry deck shelter to her deck. To make a long story short all the changes made her into a platform to be used by US Navy SEALs. If any of you've seen the movie Act of Valor the submarine in that movie is the USS Kamehameha. She also under went the same conversion. (I was wrong about this part. The submarine used in the movie was one of the Ohio class boats that had a similar conversion done to them.) Below are some pictures of the James K. Polk before and after the conversion. The James K. Polk was decommissioned in 1999 and the boat was scrapped, all except for the sail. The sail is presently on display at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
There’s my ghost story. I know it wasn’t much, but I thought you might enjoy it.
I'd like to know if you have any true ghost stories of your own. If you do have one and you'd like to share it. Send me a message at dantecraddockauthor(at)hotmail(dot)com and I will post it on my next blog on October 21st.
