Details

“Torpedo in the water!” Edward A. Sierra vividly remembers hearing those terrifying words shouted loudly across the speakers while submerged inside a nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine in the Mediterranean Sea. Ed joined the United States Navy at age 17 after graduating from high school in Medford, NY. Upon completion of an intense two-year naval training program, Ed reported to the Electrical Division aboard the U.S.S. Billfish SSN-676. He recalls his journey from boot camp in San Diego to naval schools across the country, and ultimately to his adventures as a Navy Nuclear Power Trained Electrical Operator (Navy Nuke!), serving on the U.S.S. Billfish stationed out of Groton, CT.
