20 Years have gone under the bridge... I will miss the comraderie, the new friends, the exotic port calls BUT I am damn glad to be back in the BEST DAMN COUNTRY in the WORLD. 13 years were in Japan(Yokosuka),four ships USS REEVES CG-24, USS CURTS FFG-38, USS VINCENNES CG-49, and USS MIDWAY CV-41. 10 of those 13 were at sea. Did an Instructor tour at Great Lakes from 93-97, Another in 02-05 at ATG West Pac, and finally Instructor tour at Corry Station. FC stands for Future Civilian... Well enough jaw jackin.....let's go fishin!!!! See Y'all out there...

Tight Lines All,

Rick:usaflag:letsparty

Congratulations Rick. I finished with 21 in the Navy in 1993. Life really begins now. Be sure you get your VA disability claim filed ASAP.

Congratulations, and welcome to the land of the recent military retiree. Just finished nearly 26 years, myself. I did some work with the Navy during the China/Taiwan missle crisis in 1995-96. Were you involved in that?

Congratulations! I quit after 29 years and really didn't want to, but once I did, I've never regretted it. I loved every bit of it, but it was so easy to slip into doing the things I wanted to do and never had the time to do it. Enjoy..................:clap:bowdown:usaflag
