(See C. LaVO, pp. 48-51, August 2008 Naval History)
Carl LaVO's article about the USS Nautilus' (SSN-571) 1959 underwater transarctic voyage reminded me of one of my father's Cold War experiences when he was the American naval attaché in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 1956 to 1959.
Every month or so, the naval attachés there had a luncheon where they would socialize and talk shop for a couple of hours. The August 1959 meeting occurred shortly after the Nautilus' historic voyage and, naturally, this was the center of conversation.
