In Navy speak...Welcome Aboard Shipmate! Thank You for your service and glad to see you found this forum. Got alot of good guys on here. I'm currently deployed AD Navy. I know what you mean about the teamwork. This is a great job and I've met alot of great people and some of my best friends in the world. I definitely think about that day when I'm retired and don't have this family around me on a regular basis. Anyway....hope the hunting is good this year and shoot one for me!
And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
"I served in the United States Navy"
