CDR Russell was OPSO at COSL when I arrived from Arg in the fall of 1975 as an Ensign. I served as CDO/OWO in what was then called the EC (not MEC) in the era of ECDAPS for two very happy years before he transferred out and I went back to the 33 shop. Jerry was one of the three best bosses I ever worked for during my twenty year career. Learned a lot of leadership lessons from this demanding, fair-minded and fun SOSUS titan. RIP, friend.
