The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Got talked into joining the Navy by a couple of high school friends, figured with a little luck maybe I could spent a few years in nothing but sunshine, and no cold weather. So in September of 64 I boarded an air plane headed for San Diego California's Naval Training Center. Made it back home after boot camp to central PA for part of deer season, next stop, A school in Memphis TN for 5 months, hello sunshine and warm weather. Got my new orders the end of April, headed for Newfoundland for 18 months, WHAT, this is not the place I signed up for. The only place where I've ever been where the only vertical snow fall was the first one, rest were all horizontal. Was asked toward the end of my tour there by a NG when does summer come here? Told him the first one I encountered, last year, started on July 20th, this year it was July 23rd, but I had duty both of those days and missed it. Left for home the beginning of November with 30 days leave and a bunch of travel time for S2E aircraft familiarization school in Key West Florida, YES. Then a month later ,the beginning of January, I'm in Quonset Point Naval Air Station, Rhode Island, dang it's cold here, but made deer season again. Made a 3 week shake down cruse to Saint Thomas in the Virgin Islands aboard the USS Essex CVS9 in April though.That was an interesting trip, Captain ran the carrier aground coming into Saint Thomas harbor and we got to ride out a hurricane coming home. Come the end of May we once again boarded the Essex and headed for the North Atlantic, NOT AGAIN. It did including a short time floating around the Mediterranean Sea though. Got back to the good old USA at Quonset Point the end of September, had some leave coming so made part of deer season again the beginning of December. Discharged from there in December of 67, got back home in time for doe season.

So tell me again how those few years of warm breezes and sunshine worked out for me. Lol

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

Enlisted in the national guard when I was 17 Oct 2001, Basic was at Fort Sill OK in the summer of 02, AIT was at Fort Knox in the summer of 03. I was a 19D.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
