Can't find my photo of the company but I'm pretty sure it was 136. Guess I was there first. :-) Reported 7 April 1960.

Is it just me or is the forum a little top heavy with old sailors. Makes sense, I know I've had enough time at sea to last a lifetime. My wife wants to go on cruises (went to Alaska) but I prefer the road. Seems a lot of other old "squids" may have similar feelings.

Ground pounder"...Personally, as an old sailor who always had a decent place to sleep and a warm meal, I can't think of a better way to offer respect than to call someone a "ground pounder".

It may have a lot to do with the fact we all were deployed away from home, sometimes, for long periods. Probably instilled that wanderlust that keeps us finding the next road to travel. I still miss my time at sea but cruise ships just don't have the same feeling. We took one cruise many years ago and I really enjoyed being on deck at night watching all the plankton glowing in the dark!!!

Admiral Zumwalt was responsible for the use of Agent Orange from what I have heard. I'm sure he had a hard time when reflecting upon that fact since his son died from it. That was a bad decision which he had to live with for a long time.

Didn't know that about the Admiral. That's gotta be tough.

 VA not too long ago admitted they had sprayed areas where I was stationed. Navy personnel were also listed as being exposed so I guess It went all around as an equal opportunity destroyer.

When I worked at the RV dealership summers in CT the Service Advisor was retired Army and he is constantly going to the VA for checkups as he is suffering from Agent Orange. It's not to debilitating for him but he has his problems.

After the navy I took comand of my own vessel, sailed for 30 years. Nights at sea were my reward for living all week on land. Raised a few kids on the sailboat. one went to Mass Maritime following her pop. Now its the RV and a small fleet of small power boats.
To me the connection is the Independence that the open road and the sea require. As a old salt said " There are no overpasses to pull under in a storm at sea"
I do agree with Jim Dick took a cruse when youngest daughter got married. OK just not for me, like my hand on the tiller/

Agent Orange...for all those who were exposed to this, you may be eligible for VA Benefits.  If for instance, you have CAD (ischemic heart disease) had bypass surgery, pacemaker, etc, prostate cancer, etc you are eligible for benefits and may include compensation.  Contact Your Viet Nam Rep, normally located in a VA Hosp or county offices.  Check w/ VFW American Legion for local Rep.

I'm sitting here watching MSNBC's story on the troops heading home from Iraq.  It's been a long time coming.  Afghanistan is next, soon I hope.

Everyone hopes it's soon, as long as it's not to soon, don't need another 2001 at home, that's for sure.

I have been in Iraq three years one as military and two as a civ contractor. I would say it is just a matter of time before we are back there.

No need to ever go back. Nothing to be gained. Democracy is not a concept the coincides well with Islam, its hard enough in this country. I advocate the use of low veild special weapons. I'm sick of funerals for brave young Americans led by self absorbed political idiots all in an attempt to preserve the oil flow and the Jewish state.

From what I have read the conflict between the Sunni and Shia has been going on for a 1000 years and we have done nothing to resolve it.  Add to that the other non-Muslim minorities and everything is a tempest waiting to blow.

Mix well with a few fanatics and stand back.
