SEQUEL TO A STAFFMAN'S SURPRISE SUBMERSION The Society's President spoke with veteran staff photographer Joseph Baylor Roberts, Comdr., USNR. Roberts hastily packed his camera gear. Soon he was merged (and submerged) with a shipful of proud sub mariners inside a dark-gray hull. The Department of Defense had requested an official photographer for Triton's highly classified undersea cruise around the world. Topside here, Triton's commanding offi cer, Capt. Edward L. Beach, USN, pins the ship's Presidential Unit Citation on Roberts, who is the one with the wider smile. With Captain Beach escorting and Roberts illus trating, you'll step below into twin-reactor Triton in a matter of moments. It's typical of the unusual experiences that come through Society membership. Incidentally, yours is the privilege of opening such experiences to others.
