So I retired from the Navy last month after 24 years of service.  I just secured my second career to start next week.  First my Green Egg, now this!  I consider myself one lucky/blessed Sailor.

    Yeah, Lou the moment I found out I'd been accepted I charged off to the store to pay for it! 

    I appreciate the thanks from both you and Tj.  It did a world of good for me, but it's nice to know folks out there still care about our servicemen and women.

    I was an east coast boy on the DEYO at that time.  Kinda glad I didn't end up the west coast.  Not sure I would have survived as hard as I drank back then.
