ONLINE PROGRAM: My Service on a U.S. Navy Submarine

“Torpedo in the water!” Edward A. Sierra vividly remembers hearing those terrifying words while submerged aboard a nuclear-powered fast attack submarine in the Mediterranean Sea. Hear what it was like for Ed, who embarked on his Navy career right out of high school, to complete the intense two-year Naval training program and journey from Boot Camp in San Diego to Naval Schools across the country and on to his adventure as a Navy Nuclear Power Trained Electrical Operator (Navy Nuke!) serving on the U.S.S. Billfish stationed out of Groton, CT.

Free and open to the public. Registration is required. Register below or contact the library for assistance. The Zoom link will be emailed shortly after 5:00 PM on the day of the event.

Edward A. Sierra began his career in the United States Navy. Upon completion of a two-year training program, Edward reported to the Electrical Division onboard the U.S.S. Billfish SSN-676, which was a nuclear-powered fast attack submarine.  He went on to work as a field operator at the Hope Creek Nuclear Power Station in New Jersey, and then as a nuclear reactor operator at Brookhaven National Laboratory. He is the President-Elect of the Long Island Chapter of the American Nuclear Society. Edward has earned graduate degrees from New York Institute of Technology, Dowling College, and Marist College.
