do you miss it?
i get a little nostalgic every once in a while and i really miss some of my shipmates but i love being with my daughter so much more.
Yeah, I do. Especially when I read about some country, Iran, talking shit about taking on our navy with some POS weapon from Russia. ha ha , we use to sit under Iranian patrol boats and listen to them, igits had no idea that we were there.
I miss that rush of not knowing if the drill we were on was not real. When we were heading over to Scotland one time we came out on a Russian Boomer, this happened in 92, we ghosted his ass for 4 days. He was coming up the coast of Greenland then headed to the east coast of the US.
Plus the pay was kick ass for the armed services.
I work with a mess load of Vets from all the way from Korea to the present shit we are in now. Some cat gave me a uniform from the 1st gulf war of some Iraq soldier. Some General garb.
Plus the stories, ahhhh the stories that VETS tell about shit they were in and wanted to be in. My mgr was one of the fellas in Somalia during the whole black hawk down crap. I guess with the clearance and the type of Job I do for the feds, I am surrounded by vets and people that have high level clearence.
but yeah, I miss it every so often.....but like you, I love bieng with my kids more than I miss it.
