THese are not in order, some where different NEC (navy enlisted classifiaction codes) at the same command like the 8300 and 8375/76

last but not least Navy Chief Warrant Officer W2 for albiet a very short time of 6 months. ( long story, but still get credit as an officer towards education and some benifits)

the h-60 and h-2 you deployed on small ships and we stood alone as a sinlge entity with 12-15 folks and maintained our bird to carry out missions so deemed at the pleasure of yada yada. LOVED it

LAMPS light utility airborne multi purpose system,

Absolutley loved the 22.5 years of service and would gladly return to service if called upon.

I was an AW in HSL-33. Started off as an AX which tells you how long ago that was!

AW2 here

I was an Anitsubmarine Warfare Operatior (AW) in a helo squadron which meant we were also Search and Rescue (SAR) swimmers. Got lots of hours in the SH-2D/F's. Enlisted for 6 years, 1971-77 and worked as a civilian employee of the Navy for 35 years. Retired this past May as an Engineering Tech (glorified machinist really!).
Wouldn't change a minute of it.

Old Cavalryman

Twenty-two years of US Army service here.

1. For a few years with the engineers I was truck driver.
2. Later assigned to Armor unit still as a truck driver .
3. Then onto Armor and into the Cav - Buffalo Soldiers 10th Cav.
4. Moved into Operations secondary specialty as a 12A54
5. Did some work with distributed learning just before retirement.

Took on a second career with an appliance manufacturer.

Always cherish my service and the opportunities - I found a home. Always felt a little like Andy Griffith in "No Time For Sergeants". Big old country boy suddenly a long ways from home.

My 1st Sergeant was invaluable, always counted on him and the SGM. Commanded for 4 years and I get it. PS: Top and I didn't always agree but I we always counted on each other. Thank you for your service.
