Sub life... I recall one exam question: 

 3. Define the Universe.  List three examples.

I do miss the the friendships and being able to KNOW who you can count on.  I do not miss the lengthy deployments (we were gone sometimes the whole year).  All in all I am a better person for my experience in the Submarine Force.

1. GOD
2. Christ Jesus
3. Holy Spirit

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost {aka The Holy Trinity}.  Refer to the Holy Bible (aka God's Holy Word) for more clarification / explaination.







How's that for full credit?!?!   ;D
