My idea of life on a submarine was formed by the movies A Hunt For Red October and Down Periscope. After visiting the USS Bowfin, I realize I was a little off. I had never really thought about the sleeping situation on submarines until touring this submarine. I am here to report there is not much room for the beds. The combination of living in these tight spaces and having so much water between the boat and fresh air seems like it would take a toll on soldiers. I left with even more respect for our service members than I already had.
