EP51, From a Supply Officer’s Son to Trident Missile Tech, Wood Frampton

Submarine Sea Stories | Ever wonder what it's like to spend the cold war under water with 100 other guys?

Wood Frampton grew up around the enlisted club on base where his Dad was a supply officer. He’d have french fries and watch the sailors get into fights. But that didn’t deter him from signing up for the Navy after a stint in the Coast Guard.

He eventually became a missile tech, operating the C-4 missile launching system for Trident subs.

He learned a lot from his 16 years in the Navy and is thinking of retiring to the Philippines with his new wife. He lived there as a child and thought he would never return.
