Yay! A day off! Yesterday the IBCT CDR said there was only 1/3 of 1% of the population currently serving, sad. Here's to all that came before, Thanks! Even you squid guys... j/k This appears to be the most Navy forum around and it is interesting to hear your stories.

Yeah, and they reward us by taking away our medical benefits if we make too much money. You can thank GWB for that. One of the worst presidents ever. You can thank him for the Obamanator.

If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't, not for the USSA as it is now. And knowing that I'd get the saftus maximus from the veterans medical when I needed it most.

But it was a blast. Night ops off the coast of Spain, missle-x dets in Souda Bay....the hostage crisis...all like tears in the rain.

Hell I'd do it again, I liked being a BT. Maybe even stay in. I almost shipped over last time to come up with the coin for a new '79 Low Rider except I didn't want to get sent to Florida which was the other East coast carrier homeport.

It was really only a fluke I joined the Navy in the first place, my original thought was to join the Marines or Army and blow sh*t up.....probably better off having been in the Nav work wise, running boilers has turned out to be a pretty decent gig.

Thanks to all you swabbies, jarheads, DATs, flyboys, REMFs and every other person who put on the uni.

I'd like to extend my gratitude and appreciation to all my fellow Navy veterans, as well as all those that wore other uniforms.

And also to the men and women who are serving today. God Bless them.
