navy in the mid-1950s and grew up some more. A

his home in the Submarine Force. He rode four classes of
boats, beginning with the Tench class, followed by Balao,
Lafayette, and Sturgeon. Other assignments included a
submarine squadron staff , a NATO tour, and two tours at
the US Navy’s submarine school.
After retirement, he went to work for the Space and

development of training for weapons systems acquisitions.
Mike left government service to focus on satellite
communications training for ships and submarines. This is
his first book.

While I Was Away, Memoirs of Running Quiet and Deep during the Cold War
by Mike Klein
Published: October 23, 2017
I wrote these memoirs to get down on paper our Sea Stories. Those that we share when we are together at reunions, veteran functions, and at ceremonies like inductions into the Holland Club for those fifty years SS qualified. These stories are memories that we share together, and they are also for those who follow.
