    And the memories keep on flooding back!

    Speaking of "chicks."

    I was going to school at Mare Island when I was in the Navy, and they had a bunch of WAVES stationed there. Or was it Treasure Island? Anyway, a group of them were marching in formation, and from behind they looked like a flock of ducks waddling along![​IMG]

    ...don't flame me ladies! That's the ONLY time I EVER felt that way![​IMG]

    Any swabs go to boot in Orlando when it was co-ed? I was class monitor for service week in 74. The things seen and heard were new to this 18 yr old. Kids being booted out for meeting on top of the barracks, in dumpsters, bushes, classrooms, closets, mess hall bathrooms. The sex drive is quite strong at that age.

    The penguin walk is priceless (lol). The drill deck was comical when marching with the waves. I think the Navy figured the co-ed boot camp thing couldn't work. I understand it was shut down long ago.

    It's like sending some one up to the Tender to the female stock clerk asking for Fallopian Tubes.

    penguin walk- how about doing the dead ****roach?

    USAF 1984-1988. Flew a desk. Spent whole time in lovely San Bernardino, California. Place sucked. Had assignment to some missile silo somewhere in Greece. Refused assignment (could turn down first assignment in initial enlistment). Must have been a complete and total moran to refuse Greece! I still can't believe I refused it. Had it been close to civilization I would have jumped on it. But still...Greece!?!?! Feeling like a moran all over again.

    USA 1988-Present. Will retire 1 Sep 07, and am currently on leave. Paralegal NCO and Court Reporter. Best assignment was Kaiserslautern, Germany, located due west of Frankfurt. A couple of hours from Paris, Luxembourg and Amsterdam. Man, that was a beautiful place.

    Would go back there in about a third of a heartbeat.

    Ciao,

    Oh boy; now that pulled a tear from my eye.

    I guess I've spent much of my life trying to make your job easier for you. While in the Navy our surface-to-air missiles protected our ship, and as a civilian I helped with new devices to try to keep our guys and gals out of harms way.

    Noble missions for sure.

    I think I can say on behalf of all of those who have or are serving, thank you. This is a mission worth a salute.

    Sub Base Pearl was my reserve duty for two weeks each January. Great duty station. One morning we had just finished muster and was watching the launch when Challenger went down. The Senior Chief (Philappino) tried to break up the group. He was ignored for about 15 minutes. I guess he didn't understand our bruised pride.

    For those of you who do not know of our mission, please see: http://www.jpac.pacom.mil/

    Johnsonad, thanks for your interest in helping us!!! If anyone is interested in going out with the teams to recover the missing, we are always looking for augmentees, especially if you are an independant duty corpsman or EOD. Others are always welcome to inquire. I am not in charge of selecting augmentees, but would gladly forward your interest to those who may help.

    My thanks to all of you for your service, especially if you have gone to Iraq or Afganistan.

    Go Navy!

    My father, actually:

    USAF 1974-1996

    He was in aircraft maintenance, and retired E-8. His tour of duties took him all over the place, including the Philippines (where we're from), Iceland, Turkey, Saudi Arabia (for the first Gulf War), Germany, Okinawa, and South Korea. His last years were spent at Nellis AFB in Nevada. Before that, he was in Osan, South Korea, for one of the U-2 squadrons stationed there. While we were living in Oklahoma, he was at Tinker AFB helping maintaining AWACS reconnaissance planes. He mostly worked on cargo planes like the C-130, for most of his career. I don't know too many jokes from him about his career, though he told me it was a tradition to mess with the new airman that comes along, especially whenever the egress/head/toilet needed a good cleaning. Though he doesn't talk that much about it anymore, I think it was the best years of his life.
