    I enlisted in the Navy when I was a senior in High School, and went to Boot Camp a few months after graduating. My rate was an Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) and I was a FLIR tech on S-3A Viking aircraft in ASW Squadron VS-37 (go Sawbucks!). I went on a WESTPAC tour onboard the USS Ranger (CV-61) in '80/'81.

    apr 81-apr 85, and oct 86-oct 89 I was radio teletype/satellite communications operator. Got out as a sergeant E-5.

    In Germany and Holland, I served in nuke units. The unit I was in Holland housed one of the smallest nuclear warheads in the world at the time--it fired out of a howitzer. The firing range was 15 miles or so.

    So... you're firing a nuclear bomb that is going to detonate 15 miles away. Think about that for a few, and you'll understand why those who fired it had one of the lowest test score requirements in the Army :lol:

    US Navy, '72-'74, Aviation Electronics Technician, VA-145 Swordsmen, WESPAC 1974 also on the USS Ranger.

    I'm getting together with a bunch of my VA-145 buddies this September, our 45 years out of the Navy reunion! We will drink some San Miguels and cook Lumpia, among other things.
