Admiral Arleigh Burke - Deep Dive Diploma



U.S.S. Robert E. Lee (SSBN 601) 
Pax Deterrendo 
Deep Dive Diploma 

Be it known among all ye landlubbers 
and topside sailors that on 15 Nov 60 I was 
visited in the depths of my domain by the 
U.S.S. Robert E. Lee (SSB (N) 601) 
during a dive to DEEP DEPTH. 
And among the distinguished present at that 
time was Admiral A.A. Burke, USN 
He shall forevermore bear the mark of the confirmed Ballistic Missile Submariner.
