Sadly, like so many others of The Greatest Generation,
time eventually caught up with Admiral Fluckey.
He passed away in 2007 at the age of 93.
But before he passed, he left us his thoughts.
Speaking before a new group of submariners, the admiral said:
"Serve your country well. Put more into life than
you expect to get out of it. Drive yourself and lead others.
Make others feel good about themselves, they will
outperform your expectations, and you will never
lack for friends. On U.S.S Barb, our philosophy was,
'We don’t have problems — just solutions'."
