EP44, West Virginia golfer and submariner, Matt Tate

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

Matt Tate grew up in the mountains of West Virginia and landed a job at the Greenbrier as a caddy by the age of 12 (he lied about his age). After doing that for a while and trying college, he joined the Navy. He barely passed the nuclear power aptitude test and eventually ended up with Bill Nowicki in the same Nuclear Power school class.

Matt recalls some tough nights of studying and some fun when Bill decided to create a character called Reactor Dan.

Matt went on to get married and stayed in the Navy for 20 years. He learned a lot and I would say the Navy helped him become a life-long learner.
