First 3 years spent on shore duty and schooling. Didn't see a boat until halfway into my 4th year.
2017 Grey Wolf 26CKSE
2008 GMC Sierra
2016 nights camped (2)
I was on the Lincoln for her maiden voyage. Brought her around the horn of South America from Norfolk to Alameda.
Did first deployment in 91. The day before we were to pull into the Philippines, Mt. Pinotubo erupted. Had been dormant for over 500 years. Bad timing huh? Spent 3 months in the gulf during Desert Storm. 3 stops in Dubai.
Stopped in P.I., Singapore, Hong Kong. Seemed like forever while we were deployed. Didn't seem so bad when we got back home. Did most of my enlistment at NAS Miramar.
Thank you for your service!!!
