During the 1969 Mediterranean deployment, Odax was diverted from it's scheduled operations in order to track and conduct surveillance of a specific "cold war" adversary's vessel. During that surveillance (with the exception of a few hours to offload a torpedo to a sub tender) she remained submerged and undetected for 28 consecutive days, snorkeling at night to recharge batteries and replenish air. If you have stories and the like to share please email the Webmaster. Thank You!
