TheeBadOne, I never did get duty in the M1. They were always one step behind me. We were the last M60 class at Knox. Lyin’ recruiters. (Oh, yeah, you’ll train in the most modern tank in the world.) Dogs! Was on M60A3’s in Germany and M’s were coming in to the Rock when I left. Got to mess around with them at Graf a couple of times. Great machine!

Growing up as an Army brat with a full bird JAG judge for a dad was a LOT different than being IN the Army!

US Army Cavalry Scout. 19d. 1991-95. I enlisted at 32 years old. OSUT at Ft Knox then on to Ft Hood, Tx. Left the Army with the rank of Sergeant.


3Corps, 1st Cav Division, 2nd Brigade "Blackjack", 2/12 Cav "Chargers",
HHC Scout Platoon "Stalkers" We were pretty good at what we did.

Did the NTC thing a couple of times and helped train NG troops at Camp Shelby, Miss.

Fortunate to have drawn cheese duty at various boards, (I missed a lot of real training) and was chosen Division Soldier of the Year. I got a free trip to D.C. for the AUSA convention, and got to meet a bunch of high speed military types like then SMA Kidd.

Competed at Cav Cup scout competition at Ft Bliss in 1994. We got third (I think) in the HUMVEE division.

Member of The Order of the Spur.

I miss the cool stuff like the free bullets, but I don't miss the BS. Military comeraderie is like none in the world. I miss that, too.

Thanks to all of you for your service.

USN 1986-90, USS Yosemite AD-19, B-Division, BT2 (thats E-5 for you land lubbers), Two Med. cruises, and to many Gitmos and OPPE's.

Here is a little something for you SNIPES and others that may not understand.

THE SNIPES LAMENT
NOW EACH OF US FROM TIME TO TIME, HAS GAZED UPON THE SEA,
AND WATCHED THE WARSHIPS PULLING OUT, TO KEEP THEIR COUNTRY FREE,
AND MOST OF US HAVE READ A BOOK; OR HEARD A LUSTY TALE,
ABOUT THE MEN WHO SAIL THESE SHIPS; THROUGH LIGHTING, WIND AND HAIL.

BUT THERE'S A PLACE WITHIN EACH SHIP, THAT VERY FEW DO SEE.
THAT LEGEND FAILS TO TEACH YOU, SO I'M GLAD YOU'VE COME TO ME
IT'S DOWN BELOW THE WATER LINE; IT TAKES A LIVING TOLL,
A HEATED METAL LIVING HELL, THAT SAILORS CALL "THE HOLE"

IT HOUSES ENGINES RUN BY STEAM, THAT MAKES THE SHAFTS GO ROUND.
A PLACE OF FIRE, NOISE AND HEAT, THAT BEATS YOUR SPIRITS DOWN.
WHERE BOILERS ARE THE HELLISH HEART, WITH BLOOD OF ANGRY STEAM;
ARE MOLDED GOD WITHOUT REMORSE, LIKE NIGHTMARES IN A DREAM.

THE ROARING FIRES POSE A THREAT LIKE LIVING LIFE IN DOUBT,
FOR ANY MINUTE WOULD WITH SCORN, ESCAPE AND CRUSH YOU OUT.
WHERE TURBINES SCREAM LIKE TORTURED SOULS, ALONE AND LOST IN HELL,
WITH ORDERS FROM SOMEWHERE ABOVE, THEY ANSWER EVERY BELL.

THE MEN WHO KEEP THE FIRES LIT, AND MAKE THE ENGINES RUN,
ARE STRANGERS TO THE WORLD OF LIGHT, AND RARELY SEE THE SUN.
THEY HAVE NO TIME FOR MAN OR GOD, NO TOLERANCE FOR FEAR,
THEIR ASPECT PAYS NO LIVING THING THE TRIBUTE OF A TEAR.

FOR THERE'S NOT MUCH THAT MEN CAN DO, THAT THESE MEN HAVEN’T DONE,
BENEATH THE DECKS, DEEP IN THE HOLE, TO MAKE THE ENGINES RUN.
AND EVERY HOUR OF EVERY DAY, THEY KEEP THEIR WATCH IN HELL,
FOR IF THE FIRES EVER FAIL, THEIR SHIPS A USELESS SHELL.

WHEN SHIPS CONVERGE TO HAVE A WAR, UPON AN ANGRY SEA,
THE MEN BELOW JUST GRIMLY SMILE, AT WHAT THEIR FATE MIGHT BE.
THEY'RE LOCKED BELOW, LIKE MEN FOREDOOMED, WHO HEAR NO BATTLE CRY,
IT'S WELL ASSUMED THAT IF THEY'RE HIT, THE MEN BELOW WILL DIE.

FOR EVERY DAY'S A WAR DOWN THERE, WHEN GAUGES ALL READ RED.
TWELVE HUNDRED POUNDS OF HEATED STEAM CAN KILL YOU MIGHTY DEAD.
AND EVERY MAN DOWN IN THE HOLE HAS LEARNED TO HATE SO WELL,
THAT WHEN YOU SPEAK TO THEM OF FEAR, THEIR LAUGHTER'S HEARD IN HELL.

SO IF YOU EVER WRITE THEIR SONS, OR TRY TO TELL THEIR TALE,
THE VERY WORDS YOU SPEAK SHOULD MAKE YOU HEAR A FIRED FURNACE WAIL.

AND PEOPLE AS A GENERAL RULE, DON’T HEAR OF THESE "MEN OF STEEL".
SO LITTLE’S HEARD ABOUT THE PLACE, THAT SAILORS CALL THE HOLE.
BUT I CAN SING ABOUT THIS PLACE, AND TRY TO MAKE YOU SEE,
THE HARDENED LIFE OF MEN DOWN THERE, 'CAUSE ONE OF THEM IS ME.

I'VE SEEN THESE SWEAT SOAKED HERO’S FIGHT, IN SUPERHEATED AIR.
TO KEEP THEIR SHIP ALIVE AND RIGHT, THOUGH NO ONE KNOWS THEY'RE THERE.
AND THUS THEY'LL FIGHT FOR AGES ON, TILL WARSHIPS SAIL NO MORE,
AMID THE BOILER'S MIGHTY HEAT AND TURBINE'S HELLISH ROAR.
SO WHEN YOU SEE A SHIP PULL OUT TO MEET A WARSHIP FOE,
REMEMBER FAINTLY IF YOU CAN,"THE MEN WHO SAIL BELOW".

Here is an aptitude test that was actually approved by Adm. Rickover, the head of Naval Reactors (the group that runs the nuclear power program in the navy). It may be familiar to some of the nuclear trained folks around here. It's even firearm related! :)

NAVAL REACTORS APTITUDE TEST

INSTRUCTIONS:

Read each question carefully. Answer all questions. Time limit: 4 hours. Begin immediately. Work in numerical order (equipment remaining from questions 1 may prove useful with questions 3 and 6).

1. MEDICINE: You have been provided with a razor blade, a piece of gauze and a bottle of Scotch. Remove your appendix. Do not suture until your work has been inspected. You have 15 minutes.

2. HISTORY: Describe the history of the papacy from its origins to the present day, concentrating especially, but not exclusively, on its social, political, economic, religious and philosophical impact on Europe, Asia, America and Africa. Be brief, concise and specific.

3. PUBLIC SPEAKING: Two thousand drug-crazed aborigines are storming the classroom. Calm them. You may use any ancient language except Latin or Greek.

4. BIOLOGY: Create life. Estimate the difference in subsequent human culture if this form of life had been created 500 million years earlier, with special attention to its probable effect on the English Parliamentary System.

5. MUSIC: Write a piano concerto. Orchestrate and perform it with the flute and drum. You will find a piano under your seat.

6. ENGINEERING: The disassembled parts of a high powered rifle have been placed in a box on your desk. You will also find an instruction manual printed in Swahili. In 10 minutes, a hungry Bengal tiger will be admitted to the room. Take whatever action you feel is appropriate. Be prepared to justify your decision.

7. SOCIOLOGY: What sociological problems might accompany the end of the world? Construct an experiment to test your theory.

8. MANAGEMENT SCIENCE: Define management. Define science. How do they relate? Create a generalized algorithm to optimize all managerial decisions. Assuming a 7600 CPU supporting 50 terminals, each terminal to activate your algorithm, design the communications interface and all necessary control problems.

9. PSYCHOLOGY: Based on your knowledge of their works, evaluate the emotional stability, degree of adjustment and repressed frustrations of each: Alexander of Aphrodinias, Ramses II, Gregory of Nicea, Hammurabi; support your evaluation with quotations from each man's work. It is not necessary to translate.

10. ECONOMICS: Develop a realistic plan for refinancing the national debt. Trace the possible effects of your plan on these areas: Cubism, the Donatist Controversy and the Wave Theory of Light.

11. EPISTEMOLOGY: Take a position for or against truth. Prove the validity of your position.

12. CLASSICAL PHYSICS: Explain the nature of matter. Include in your answer an evaluation of the impact of the development of mathematics on science.

13. MODERN PHYSICS: Produce element 107. Determine its half-life.

14. ENERGY RESOURCES: Construct a working fusion reactor.

15. PHILOSOPHY: Sketch the development of human thought; estimate its significance. Compare with the development of any other kind of thought.

16. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: Describe in detail, briefly.

17. EXTRA CREDIT: Define the universe; give three examples.

Here is an aptitude test that was actually approved by Adm. Rickover, the head of Naval Reactors (the group that runs the nuclear power program in the navy).

So..... Exactly how high do I score, if after reading the first question, I sit back in my chair, and flip the examiner "the bird" for the next 4 hours?

Or better yet, I begin to attempt to remove the examiner's appendix?

Hey Bob R!

I would have given up a right testicle to get into P-3's but my every 3 year conversation with the PR detailer went something like this....

PR Detailer - "So, where do you want to go there bubba?"

ME - "P-3 squadron, anywhere!"

PR Detailer - "No problem! I'll pencil you in for the USS Iwo Jima" (LPH-2)

THREE YEARS LATER

PR Deatiler - "So where do you want to go there bubba?"

ME - "P-3 squadron, anywhere!"

PR Detailer - "No Problem, I'll pencil you in for NAS Agana Guam"

Repeat this exercise for 23 years.....

----------------------------------------------------------
At last years TICO (Titusville - Cocoa) airshow, they had a P-3 there from I believe VP-17. Repeated my sad story to the AT3 giving the dog and pony show, and told him I had FINALLY gotten into P-3's, but I had to pay $8 at the airshow to do it!

(ive posted this on thr beforebut want to try again)

my friend dick z (academy class of '65) has a sea story forum that he's trying to get more activity on.

it comes up as a uss buchanan snipe story forum but there are places for any kind of story you want to tell regardless of what ship(s) you served on, just don't scare the lifers too much.

or if you just want to read there is plenty there on all topics of navy life from both officers and enlisted men.

theres also a cool virtual tour of an adams class destroyer.

all of the stories were posted by dick, so it appears he is the only contributor.

when you open the story the real author is credited

register and tell a tale if youd like, i KNOW it would make him a happy camper, he worked really hard on it

the uss cochrane folks are kind enough to host it for him.

www.usscochrane.com/ddg14/forum/default.asp

i also have 2 free copies of a book he compiled of stories from the academy class of '65, the first class to graduate into the vietnam war.

if you are interested, i'd be glad to send one along to you. i'll even pick up the tab on postage

p/m or email me

After basic, I served in the 300th Long Range Reconaissance Patrol Co., in Fritzlar, Germany. For the last two years of my service, I served in the 36th Army Aviation Regiment (Anti-Tank), also in Fritzlar.

Too many schools, assignments, and exercises in those four years to list them all here. Lots of silly stuff about jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, and wearing the soles off several sets of boots.

USN 1990-1995 /Seabee (Alpha type)/ four deployments with NMCB-7.

On and off from 1995 to present, I have been in four National Guard units in three different states as either a 63E or a 12B. Thus far, I have been underwhelmed by the National Guard. This is probably my last hitch.

Take care,

Got stationed at Ft. Richardson in 90 & fell in love with Alaska. Was 1 week from packing out to go back to Riley when Bill Clinton decided that the Russians were no longer our enemies, and we didn't need so many Russian linguists any more, so early retirement was authorized. Easy decision!
