*sigh*. Life turned out a bit different than I expcected...tossed out @ tOSU, was not ready for it (I was 17 at the time) and joined the NAVY. My plan started off with a 6 year enlistment, that I was getting out after and either going back to Columbus on the GI Bill or Boston (please don't ask). I ended up meeting my wife, getting married around the 4 and a half year mark (14 years now!), and staying in. I would love nothing more than to (FINALLY) finish my degree from Ohio St, but unless they start on-line classes in the next 5 months, it isn't going to happen. Right now, I am trying to finish deployment, and choose between Toledo and Penn St for my degree completion. That isn't going to make me any less of a fan.

Not a bourbon drinker myself, but I have wanted to do the apple pie or coffee bean for my Brother in Law. Maybe next year, as this year I got him coins from multiple ships we've sailed with.

I thought of this on the good ol' treadmill today. I think they would wreck the week 2 team.

The commercial was sweet. I am more UA gear/ Nike everyday shoe/ Brooks running though, unless it is Ohio St or NY Giants gear.

Can anyone going to the gold pants social get me a Mike Doss autograph?

Haifa 2006, one of my favorite ports...I was shore patrol and had a blast. Thanks for posting and I am glad it worked out.

I did ATG from 08-11. Underway for 16 of the 35 months I was there. So here you go: deployed in 06, 08, ATG from 08-11 (16 months), deployed in 2012, and deployed this year (current). I am going to miss it. Like you said, miserable while here, but it is going to be a tough walk down the pier. I don't think you can understand unless you've lived it.

Yeah, I got to my first ship in '97 (USS COLE but I left 2 months before the bombing) and did a deployment before we went mixed gender. I got into a fight after the 99 game with an FC who was a scUM fan. I am having mixed emotions because I am on my last deployment, but I am the 3MC and 3M still sucks. I transfer a few months after we get back, and this is my 5th ship, with a shore tour at ATG!

I am on one now. Did you know any of the ST's back in the day? I had a buddy on there in 97 or so.

Thank you for posting and please tell your Dad I said thank you. One of my favorite race memories was stopping about 10 feet away from the finish line to stop and tell a Vietnam Vet "Welcome home".

What ship? I got German Sailors to help with an O H I O on their ship Friday night, but I can't get photobucket to load it while I am U/w.
