070318-N-3642E-343 ARCTIC OCEAN (March 18, 2007) – Commander, Submarine Force, Vice Adm. John Donnelly looks over the frozen Arctic Ocean from the bridge of attack submarine USS Alexandria (SSN 757). Alexandria surfaced through three feet of ice during ICEX-07, a U.S. Navy and Royal Navy exercise being conducted on and under a drifting ice floe about 180 nautical miles off the north coast of Alaska.

 The husband has had this experience….twice.  What a great experience for these sailors!  I would think it would be really loud, scary and pretty unbelievable to pop out of the water and see all that ice.
