Submarine course passed

Navy Seaman Recruit Adrian T. Diaz, son of Maria Diaz of South Lake Tahoe, recently graduated from the Basic Enlisted Submarine Course at the Naval Submarine School in Groton, Conn. He joined the Navy in July 2002.

During the week-week course Diaz learned the basic theory, construction and operation of nuclear-powered submarines. Diaz also learned shipboard organization, damage control and submarine safety and escape procedures.

Diaz participated in hands-on training with reality simulators, practicing firefighting and flood control on board a submarine. Diaz also learned about a submarine’s basic hydraulic, water and air systems, and practiced escaping from a simulated sinking submarine.
