Wow. I turned my thread into a service thread. (as a matter of course LEOs & FD stand with us) OK... My dad was RAF WW2 so I doubt you were in then. I was a happy accident at 42 for my mom.
Wade could probably tell you some tall tales... about 50 years AFTER he's released from his top secret clearance. (I'm thinking I might actually ride out to you to hear them at that time.)
jrlakin: A what? I have an Android phone.
Eddie: You know better. A boat becomes a ship by what its length is. I guess by THAT standard a fast attack is a boat and a boomer is a ship.
Gruivis: Strange. I don't normally listen to music in my sport truck. I really liked it today when I went to the gas station AND PAID $16.50 TO FILL UP!!! Music to my ears...
Eddie: (again) Why is it the Air Force has the best food? Seriously! I went to Hickham AFB for midrats and there were cars from Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines all around the parking lot...
tconnell: Hope the best and steady doctor's hands for you!
Eddie: (yeah I know) My COB always threatened to send me to an air craft carrier. One day I called him aside. I said, ya know when you're in boot camp and have to put 4 things you'd like to do on a paper? I put avaition machinist mate, aviation structural mechanic, aviation electrician, and for a goof put subs as the 4th entry. Then told him I'll qualify subs but could he stop threatening me with what I wanted in the FIRST place!?!
