SUBMARINES
***** This is the homepage of the Home Page for USS Ray SSN-653 which was the fast attack sub my husband served on for 6 years. Lots of terrific info and funny stories about what is like to be part of the silent service. The Ray was decommissioned in 1993. INTERESTING TRIVIA: A church in Kyoto, Japan calls its congregation to worship with a bell from a submarine. The bell, from the submarine USS RAY was purchased for the church, and was transported to Yokosuka, Japan by another submarine, the USS RONQUIL.  Submarine Photo Index: Ray (SSN-653) - USS RAY (SSN-653) STORE:GIFTS,MUGS,HATS,SHIRTS : CafePress.com - USS RAY (SSN-653) LINKS - USS RAY (SSN-653) Crew, Photos, Links & Deployments - USS Ray (SSN 653) - USS Ray SSN-653 Crew: Then and Now - SubmarineSailor.com - USS Ray BBS on SubmarineSailor.com - USS Ray (SSN-653) | Facebook
