Natural Sound: "It is with great pride and pleasure that I reflect on many years spent in submarines. As a young officer I served in the earliest types, the forerunners of our modern undersea craft. (SCU) Every officer and man who enters the submarine service of the US Navy today quickly comes to appreciate the great value placed on a high sense of duty, initiative, resource- fulness and an intimate knowledge of the ship and its weapons. Every man must either fish or cut faith. (CU) the submarines and submariners whom you will see in the Warner Bros. picture are worthy inheritors of our great naval tradition as to toughness of their ships, daring of their crews and the high quality of their performance.
