    In dungarees, headed to the fantail Smoking Head
  1. Leigh's post above about the cereal reminded me I saw 2 grown men almost get into a fistfight over boxes of Golden Grahams on the FWD messdeck of the carrier I was on LOL
  2. When I was in the Navy in the early 90s, anything less than 20 years old was brand new still!

  4. Lower powered rounds used in testing. You see where both it pierces it and bonces off making the dent..but have seen more actual combat/not test ones with a hole in them.

  6. VA-34 also had the honor of the last A-6 Intruder cat shot on my old ship, the USS George Washington. I'm the guy up in Vulture's Row lol They were a big part of the birds I saw in my time in the Navy. I'm SURE he and I were on board the GW at the same time. (I was 92-96)
  7. Yep, red for night time...not glamorous, but dang useful! They came on at lights out, or anytime the regular lights went off.
  8. *Naval Love it!! Great Mistakes graduate myself LOL
  9. Dungarees were denim pants, chambray shirt, did he wear HBTs as a Seabee? IIRC, Navy never used laundry numbers.. 50's sailors here:
  10. Just slap 4 pieces of toast and a couple good scoops of chipped beef on that bad boy and I'd be ready for another 18 hour day underway!
