Nothing like anything you guys have been through, but I was bobbing around off the coast of Kuwait in 1991 in a giant gas can (Clicky link).

Closest I got to combat was when we were between the USS Missouri and her assigned target when they were told to open up with the 16" guns. Missouri advised command that we were down range. The chilling response? "Sucks to be them. NGFS on your target NOW!!"

Never seen the old Rolling Joke haul *** quite like that day!!

I visited compound 5 several times. Pretty much everyone we rolled up before the warrant based arrests in 2010 were released after we left. Crazy!

Ah makes sense, no I'm Air Force Ammo, they used to be four month deployments which meant 5-6 in reality. Then we went to six months which now means 7-8
