First, tell us about yourself!

I read in another thread that you are currently at Fort Irwin, CA - there for training? What outfit are you with?

Sounds like a pretty cool duty assignment to me there nvcharger! Biggest difference between your "normal" steed and your current one is that a piece of armor won't argue with ya like that horse will!

I went to the very first Chargers game up in the LA Coliseum with my Dad, (now deceased), and have been a fan of this team ever since. All those years, part of which were 24 spent in the Navy, have led me to many "strange and far-away places" - and I can honestly say I've been a Charger fan from the South China Sea to the Mediteranian Sea and yeah - over in the Indian Ocean and all points in between. WestPac, EastPac, Shellback - WestLant, EastLant - shoot I got the opportunity to see them all as over 18 years of that 24 were spent on sea duty - and through them all I was a Charger fan.

It was a lot tougher to follow our team back then, (I retired in '87 as the MCPOC of a command here in San Diego), as we didn't have access to sports news like what is available today. Man what I wouldn't have given for the Internet back in '68 for a break and some sports news during the Tet offensive... We had little opportunity to "escape" back into the "real world" back then and I'm sure glad that today's soldiers and sailors have that opportunity... Having "been there" I can appreciate how important that kind of thing would be to the young men and women serving our country today.

I don't "envy" them - I'm just proud that it is there for them.

Aside from my "normal" shipboard duties, I did my part for the crew by serving as the volunteer "Chief MARS Operator" (Military Affiliate Radio System) on my last four sea commands - using voice radio to help crew members contact their families and friends back home via phone patches and such (and oh by the way get the score on that last Chargers/Raiders game! )... but as important as it was back then - it was NOTHING compared to what is available today.

Again - welcome aboard there Mate. As a member of our Armed Forces you have my deepest respect and admiration.
