His asvab scores didn't make the cut to become an FC. He moved to Las Vegas a few months ago and didn't retake the test.

He's now back in San Diego with me and will go to bootcamp on the 9th of Jan. Yea, he would have potentially enjoyed shooting Tomahawks & Harpoons like I did, but it wasn't in the cards for him.

VERY few Navy folks get to shoot missiles (especially cruise missiles) for a living that aren't pilots.

Jerry graduates from Navy bootcamp today!

I spoke with him on the phone a couple days ago, along with getting letters from him too. He really seems to enjoy it so far.

Its my son Jerry who's going - not me. I retired in '04.

From what I understand, AMH's can volunteer to be part of an aircrew (be aboard the aircraft when its flying and not always ground crew), but I don't know when the opportunity to volunteer takes place.


was there from Jan to Sep 82...boot camp & FT school...Lordy, that was a long time ago...

I did get to shoot a SM 2 at a drone at the drone range at rosie roads ...quite a rush!

A little info about the AM world. The AM's in squadron life hate it becuase of all the inspections that have to be completed for so many flight hours and so many days. Me being a AME it is nowhere as bad. A lot less stuff to work on. Just the air conditiong for the jet and the ejections seats. Now when AM's are at AIMD they do a lot less work and are a lot more layed back. Either way i hope he enjoys it. If you or your son has anything about the aviation life of the USN feel free to ask.
