Scott Waddle, a native of Austin, Texas, graduated from the United States Naval
Academy in May of 1981 earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Chemistry. Following
graduation he was commissioned an Ensign and embarked on a twenty-year career
in the submarine force where he served aboard Atlantic Fleet trident ballistic
missile boats Alabama and Kentucky and Pacific Fleet fast
attacks San Francisco and Greeneville.
In June 1998, after earning a Masters of Science degree from the National Defense
University in Washington D.C., he was hand picked from a highly competitive
field of two hundred fifty officers to command the USS Greeneville,
an improved Los Angeles class fast attack submarine. In March of 1999 he relieved
as the Commanding Officer of the Greeneville in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
On the fateful day of February 9, 2001, Commander Waddle's life was forever
changed when he gave the order to perform an emergency surface maneuver that
inadvertently caused the nine-thousand ton submarine to collide with the Ehime
Maru, a 500 ton Japanese fishing vessel, killing nine people on board.
Against the advise of his attorney and the Navy's direction, he took
responsibility for the accident. In October of 2001 he was honorably discharged
from the Navy and retired from active duty as a commander. Scott Waddle is an
author and inspirational speaker.
