West Creek’s Patrick Kohr, machinist mate first class in the Navy, is assigned to the Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Topeka. He checked in last week from the pier at U.S. Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Japan, via the Tennessee-based Navy Office of Community Outreach:

“I joined the Navy to improve my quality of life and to see the West Coast,” he said. “One of my best experiences I’ve had while serving on Topeka was surfacing at the North Pole.

“I’ve made lifelong friends on submarine duty, because they are the best group of people you will ever meet.”
