MEGADETH Hands Out Autographs on a Submarine
Here’s some cool shit. Megadeth went to my old stomping grounds by heading over to the Naval Station in Norfolk, Virginia and visiting the Los Angeles–class attack submarine USS Helena (SSN 725) on Monday, August 1. I was lucky enough to be allowed on one back in the day. They’re very cool “boats” but just too tight of quarters for this gal. The 360-foot ship has a current crew of 16 officers and 134 enlisted sailors. The band received a tour and signed autographs for the sailors.
Here are some photos, taken by Communication Specialist 1st Class Todd A. Schaffer:
