    Welcome back, Neptoon.

    I guess it's a sign of how long you've been gone that I looked at your sig and thought ''Castelo? Is he still around?"

  13. Another Bubblehead!!!!! :hyper:

    ET1(SS/SW) retired, former RM. All Fast attacks and one tender (Charleston and Guam, USS Holland).

    What's your rate?

    I used to play underway all the time, but back then I was a guitar player. I prefer bass.

    You know what they say.. "300 men go down........"..

    :p ;)

    I jest.. Was aboard the USS Eisenhower (CVN 69), CINCLANT, ET2(SW) when I got out.. Had planned on making a career but then Clinton started cutting benefits... :rolleyes:
  15. Hey, get it right!!! It's "120 men go down, 60 couples come back". Truth is, some of us are sluts so it's not 60 couples. ;)

    Skimmers. :rolleyes:

    Welcome back!

    My buddy was just assigned to a sub in Pearl Harbor but its refuelling for a few years so he's probably not going anywhere.
  18. Nope. Fast Attacks all the way. And, even as an RM, I went to just as many, if not more, electronics schools as any surface ET. We had to fix our own gear on subs. That's why it was an easy transition to ET for me. Besides, ET looks a lot better on a resume for a civilian job than RM does.

    Nickman, which boat in Pearl? I spent 3 years out there on the USS Bremerton.
