4. I was at the Groton, CT Drive-In theatre

When the movie stopped, the lights came on, and an announcement came over the window speakers that “all forces afloat personnel must report back to your ship or submarines immediately.”

So began a race to get offshore searching for the lost sub. The Thresher sank 5 years earlier, and my mother got really upset with me when I volunteered for sub duty a couple of years later, and now with the Scorpion sinking she got really rattled.
