Ep 12 - Phil Ambagtsheer

In this episode we talk to Board member Phil Ambagtsheer. Phil was born and raised in Los Angeles and joined the US submarine fleet after college in the earli 80s. In 1984 Phil transferred to the Henry Clay SSBN 625 Gold Crew nuclear missle submarine which operated out of the Holy Loch. Phil talks about his life as a submariner. He goes into the psychology of being alone with a crew deep below the waves.  He talks about life ashore and the strains that the job places on those you love. He shines a very clear light on life aboard a submarine in the dark depths of the ocean.  Introduction - Kate Simpson.
