In a conversation with a navy friend yesterday I stated that the TV news said that 96 nuke warheads have been lost at sea from various nations over the years, some where lost from plane crashes over the ocean, some rolled off carrier decks and some went down with subs. I went on to say that I know that the USSR lost some boomers but the US never lost any boomers only two nuke attack subs; Thresher and Scorpion which I don't think had nuke warheads on board. He said no the US did loose a boomer but would not elaborate any further. My question for today is did the US loose a boomer and what was it's name? I have never heard this before. I know a US boomer lost the sail during some tight manuevers at sea but did make it home for repairs.
