UAV operators in the United States Navy (USN) are drawn from two different training pools. The soon to be fielded X47 carrier launched drones utilize test pilots who have …completed USN undergraduate flight training. UFT is where pilots earn there flight wings, and learn other skills such as survival, evasion and resistance (SERE) training. Helicopter type drones can be piloted by flight school trained pilots, and drone schooled specific operators.

The U.S. Navy's first real operational and commissioned submarine was the USS Holland (SS-1), launched on May 17, 1897, and commissioned October 12, 1900. It was designed an b…uilt by Naval Engineer John Phillip Holland, founder of the famed General Dynamics Electric Boat Division. Prior to the Holland, the U.S. Navy did accept a submarine on May 1, 1862 that was eventually called the Alligator; however, it never really made it past testing, and was cut adrift at sea and lost during a storm. Its original power source was oars.
"The Silent Enemy"
Don't know about the WW2 Operation Dufflebag. Could you possibly mean the one that we ran in Vietnam? In 1970, the USASF A432 Thuong Thoi detachment (among others) guided US…N electronic techs into Mekong Delta border areas to implant electronic listening devices along the various enemy resupply corridors. We also hosted some of the USN techs who sat in a bunker and listened in for heavy footsteps. This was the Vietnam version: Army Special Forces for tactical entry/egress, USN volunteer detachment for equipment operation, and Marine Corps Force Recon for damage assessment. I've never found any record of it myself, but that could be for many reasons. Since nobody debriefed me, I don't believe it was secrecy. Either the operation was too tiny to mention, or got canceled because it didn't pan out. Who knows? I left in the middle of it and returned home to take a breath. Personally, I believe it was too small to matter (sorry CPO Fred Z., and most importantly, RIP CO3 Tommy S.). My only clue for the smallness issue is the fact that these guys got to design their own patch & write their own unit motto. Patch was Snoopy on top of his shot-up doghouse with headphones on his ears. Motto was, "Only God Knows More." I don't know, that makes it sound pretty small to me. But the Navy is different. Since they could only sport the patch & motto in-country (just not in the boonies), maybe uncertain outcome got this puppy lost to history. Check some USN and USMC records (I only pinged Army SF).
