Commander Scott Waddle, USN (ret.) graduated at the top of his class at Annapolis. With twenty years' experience in the construction, maintenance, and operation of nuclear-powered submarines, he was handpicked from a highly competitive field of 250 naval officers to command a Los Angeles class fast-attack nuclear submarine. As commanding officer of the USS Greeneville, he managed a 140-man crew. He retired from active duty in October 2001 with the rank of commander.  Commander Scott Waddle is the author of The Right Thing.


According to the book description of The Right Thing, “When a U.S. nuclear submarine collided with a Japanese fishing vessel in the spring of 2001, the story made national headlines. Navy Commander Scott Waddle, former captain of the U.S.S. Greeneville, was at the center of the controversy. This is the first-hand, never-before-published account of that fatal moment and the heart-breaking avalanche of events that followed.”
