Note: The US Navy put no restrictions on me about what I should say or how I should present what I learned on this trip. Other than making sure my footage was cleared for Operational Security, I am free to say whatever I want about this experience.

Another note: The Navy did not ask me to provide a link to their website (or do anything for that matter), but I’m going to provide a link because I want smart people to become submariners. The US Navy continues to provide stability and security in ways no other organization on earth does. If you are interested to find out how you can join the Navy you can visit the website here: www.navy.com/

There are tons of interesting career opportunities out there that I never knew about:

The US Navy has several options such as engineer, pilot, submariner, logistics, accountant, medical doctor, and even Public Affairs specialist. I continue to be impressed by people that I meed who spent time in the Navy. I worked with various people during the course of filming this video and they were all top notch. www.navy.com/

Here's a video about loading and firing a harpoon missile from the USS Olympia (I filmed the impact): www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-xVj...

When I boarded the USS Toledo I did not know I was going to be given the opportunity to crawl down a torpedo tube. Honestly I was thinking I would have a conversation with someone about the periscope or something but it did not occur to me that when you are under the ice you cannot use the periscope. When they asked me if I wanted to see a torpedo tube I didn’t realized I had no clue how they worked. Most people overlook this seemingly simple system, but when you take a moment and analyze it you will realize it is quite complicated. I hope this is the level of detail you were hoping for in the submarine series, because this is what gets me excited. I haven’t decided which video is next but I’ll tell you this, I did not know one of the methods they use on board to make oxygen. Anyways, thank you for watching the series and please consider subscribing if you feel like this is worthy of your time. I don’t know if you’re the type of person that likes to share videos with other people, but I would appreciate it if you could pass the submarine series on to a friend or two. As always, I would like to express my gratitude to people who support Smarter every day on Patreon at www.patreon.com/SmarterEveryDay . I am thankful for the support, and the next video has a special surprise for you, the Patrons.

Google says they carry like 25 torpedo shaped things. I only see two in that room? With maybe room for another six, but the space is being used for storage instead? I wonder how many they can quickly launch. Some look like they are basically lined up to be quickly loaded and launched, but some they must have to move around laterally or something.

I've been a submarine nut since I was a kid 50 years ago and first read "Up Periscope" and "Run Silent, Run Deep". Seeing the inner workings of this modern torpedo tube - probably not much different from those on the Gato and Balao Class Fleet boats of WWII - lets me see for myself what the narrative in those novels was referring to when describing the procedures for firing the Mk. XIV steam torpedo. I now exactly what the WRT tank is. Thank you so much, for posting this, and thank you to the officers and crew of USS Toledo for making it possible.

I am just blown away by the crampedness of everything on the subs. Until you see it I guess it's impossible to envisage just how much stuff is jammed into such a small space. It's not really a small space so that gives you some idea of how much stuff is there. Even the launch tube door was about as 10 times as complicated looking as I expected.

Aye i see your PMRF shirt!! SHOUTSOUT FROM KAUAI! BUT END THE COLONIZATION, if you trully want to get smarter everyday look into HAWAIIAN SOVEREINGTY. Youʻll see immediately that PMRF and the rest of the military outpost and bases are completly illegal and a strong hint toward we Kanaka Maoli/ʻōiwi that they (U.S.) are in charge. A great wrong has been done to the Hawaiian people we have been denationalized and gentrified by the United Corporation of America and even Bill Clinton addmited to it, the U.S. has commited and is in continuation commiting WAR CRIMES. Under the Geneva Conventions and articles passed through the Hague what the U.S. has done here is a crime and has been proven by Dr.Federico Lenzerini and Dr. Keanu Sai. If you have been to Hawaii or seen it in movies or TV you may notice theres not too many Hawaiians in Hawaii or maybe it just takes a little closer look or a change in cultural “lense”. Ill tell you one thing my friend if its my last, HAWAII IS IN GRAVE DANGER OF LOSING ITS NATIVE POPULATION, EVERYONE WORRIES MORE ABOUT RHINOS AND ELEPHANTS GOING EXTINCT BUT AT THE SAME TIME DONT TAKE THE TIME TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES OF THE PEOPLES DYING (CULTURES) AND THE PLACES THEY LIVE IN ALL BEING SOLD TO FOREIGNERS WITH FOREIGN INTEREST 🤑🤑🤑 YOU HAVE THE POWER TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE AND CHANGE THINGS PLEASE IF YOU DONT MIND ATLEAST LOOKING INTO, THE HAWAIIAN KINGDOM AND HAWAIIAN SOVEREINGTY.

Your video's are so interesting......There's a question I wish you would have asked him...But I know he'd never tell you the truth..... I wish you would have asked him has anyone (as a joke) ever closed the door when someone was inside the tube signing their name....Probably, if the tube door closed, I bet all kinds of lights would start going off.....Then you would have to explain to someone why you closed the door with a man inside........Oh yes, I could never crawl down the torpedo tube like you did..... Just thinking about it freaks me out.

I'm very surprised by how cramped these units are. Considering the total displacement of such a ship, it's amazing how little space they have to sleep, eat, etc. No wonder in the episode they say few people volunteer... it's claustrophobic. Compare this to the TK-17 Arkhangelsk, these guys got a pretty raw deal if you ask me.

One of the things I love about Destin is that simple phrase, "My understanding is..." It's genius. It explains to someone that you have an interest in whatever is being discussed, and that you know at least a little about it. Yet at the same time it suggests that you'd like to know more, you're open to being corrected, and you acknowledge that they know more than you and that you're cool with that fact. Those three words are a fantastic tool for opening really worthwhile dialogue. I'm going to strive to use them a lot more in my life.
