Never visited this forum of DHC before and wanted to see what is going on here. My background is 10 years US Navy, Uss Jesse L. Brown FF1089 out of Charleston. And Machias Maine at the VLF site talking to the subs. Rode the Tinosa(spelling?) Fast attack sub for a couple of weeks and most of our missions on the ship were durg ops. Got out in 1996 and sure miss it at times. There is no other teamwork I have ever seen that can compare to the days on a ship out to sea. I Would love to be at sea again for a few weeks just to get away and refresh some old memories. I was an ET2(sw) (crypto, radio and Radar tech) when I got out, There was really no room for advancement for us ET's at that time and I was tired of Moving every 4 years. Did a lot of hunting on the base in Cutler and in the bays surrounding the transmitter island.
