|McGrew, Michael||MM2||Mar 11, 1993 – Apr 17, 1997||obviously THE BEST||I arrived on the old dog as a f'n NUB. The first person I met,and probably the most influential,was MMC Mark Katona. I learned more about what is important about life from him and the others I served with on her than I had learned before or since|
|Richardson, Joshua||RM3(SS)||Apr 1993 – May 1994||COMMS||"Spadedog" was a good boat and a great crew. For those who remember: "...I hate this and this f'n place..." I handle stress much better now...|

|Quick, Aaron (Skip)||MM2 (SS/DV)||May 1993 – Apr 1997||EM01||Wow, miss the friendships, the port calls, the parties and good times. Don't miss reactor start-ups, ORSE, on station. Loved to go diving off the sub, especially with Archey and Perkins. Miss you Glenn!|
|Thompson, Jim||RM1/SS||Jun 1993 – Jun 1994||Radio||Was Co-LPO, until CPT Puryear arrived (crazy f***), Worst place I ever served. Crew was great, command was the problem. Most professional crew you could want. Too bad the CO wasnt worth a damn. Do they still have the psycho wing named for spadefish.|
|Thompson, Jim||RM1/SS||Jun 1, 1993 – Jul 14, 1994||Radio||Great Ship, Great Crew, CO sucked (Puryear),|
