Where are the Sailors?

Postby cwhit519 » Tue Apr 08, 2008 12:45 am

Just wanted to drop a line to all the sailors out there. I am in the Middle East right now. Can't wait to get back hme and do some waterfowling this year. I missed alot of last year due to deployment, but not this year. YES!!! 2 more months left. This place is driving me nuts. Hope all is well back in the states.

Usualy the best place to find sailors is explainiing to the marines that the big silver birds are airplanes :eek: :eek: Just kiddin, there is nothin wrong with bein a marine, that a good 5th grade education woul'nt cure.. Now stop that. Have you heard to new marine matto, MARINES the other sailors. Can you tell my son was a sailor. As for myself I was never a member of a n orginiesed military service, I was a soilder :rofl: :rofl:. All kidding aside My respects to all those who serve.

Im here in California just waiting to hunt some thing. I spent ten years in the Navy. I got out of active duty as a BT/ MM3 (sw/aw) in 1999. I was one of the last Boiler techs.I was a builder in the CBs untill 2003. Got out as a BU2 (sw/aw/scws) in 2003. I spent three tours in the Gulf. One in the north atlantic. Got my blue nose and shell back. Good luck and God bless. Keep your head on a swivel and your powder dry...

Continue to stay safe. Where are you headed to when you come back? I'll be heading out in September, not exactly sure when yet, but hoping to catch a few days of the early season before we do!

Hey all......... Thanks for the posts. I am an AT3. The nerd of the aviation rate. I am in the P-3 navy. I am stationed in Brunswick, ME. The base is closing soon and will be relocating to Jacksonville, FL. I have been in 2 years now (Frosted Flakes, since breakfast). Well, things are what they are over here. Just ready to come home. Hope all is well back state side. I would say with the army and marine thing, not to be a hater, but I have met some people that would make you say "damn". Not the sharpest. Well everyone be safe.

We have those "dull" people in all branches! We just need to remember "One Team, One Fight!". Of course, we are going to have the jabbing between services for fun..what else would we do! Of course, being a Sailor I am partial to the Navy! Stay safe over there cwhit and soon you'll be whackin' 'em and stacken' 'em! Have you done any sea duck hunting up there in Maine? Are you from Maine originally?

K9,

Of course you are right, I have tons of respect for all branches even army and marine. I have seen those boys in action and I will tell you they are some of the bravest people I know. I have not done any offical sea duck hunting. I have had a few come into a spread and some Eiders found themselves in the bag for the day. After that day I have not shot any since. I shoot birds that I will eat and if not give to the game dinners. I would not feed and Eider to my worst enemy. NASTY!!! Thank you for the kind words. I am trying my best to get myself back to the states in one piece. I am originally from Vermont so not too different. Well, better get back to the plane. Talk to you all later.

Cwhit,

Stay safe and when you get back give me yell, I always have room for military in my blind. I'll be in Maine first week of gun season for deer this year. Looks like the winter was pretty hard on the herd but it is always a good time in camp.

Take care Mike

Got out as STG3 in '97. USS David R. Ray. Decommed now. I wish I would've been a waterfowler back then. We were homeported out of Everett, Wa. Coulda' got me a harlequin! I'll do it one day! :thumbsup:

I am in the Navy up here in Whidbey Island WA. If any of you want to come up and shoot some ducks let me know. We get some great birds here. This year I will try my hand at sea duck hunting.

Thought I would drop in on this thread myself...... AT1 (AW/SW) here.... stationed at MCAS Beaufort (yeah playing with the Marines).... I spent 2 years in Maine and 4 years in Whidbey Island so if either of you all need detailed info on some SECRET spots shoot me a Pm and i'll spill the beans!!!! I killed LOTS of birds in both places and may even know some locals to help you out.


Dude your DEAD wrong about eiders too..... not only is that the most fun type of duck i've ever hunted it's really the best tasting too.... don't listen to them fools if you do it right that bird will shock you with how good it tastes!!!!!
