This is a pic of the ship I served on. I believe that she has been decommissioned now.
Thanks for your service!
I probably already said it and I will probably say it again.
I just read your post about Hilary. Yea, I remember the flight thing. One of my current co-workers is a vet. His father-in-law is the ranking FAA official between Dallas and I think Phoenix but maybe just El Paso. He is a young kid, 27, He came back from Iraq with three purple hearts and a Silver Star for "Just doing my job!" Yea, RIGHT!!!! He is medically undeployable and so he got out. He's a hell of locksmith now, and he has a lot of respect from me, both in his job abilities and for his service. I don't think he realizes it yet, but its the truth. I can say that I didn't do a lot in my service, as I served in a "Peacetime Navy." But this kid did something that I didn't have to do. Yea, he has a LOT of my respect!
