^^^ Now that I'm back home with an ex-wife and a son really makes me wish I hadn't got out of the navy and the sub fleet. Maybe when I drop some weigh I'll see ya'll once again, in the bridge, mid-January, 18 knots on the surface, waves crashing in your face that instantly turn to ice. As bad as it sounds, you instantly don't care once you hear the nav telling the OOD that Ches Light is approaching and then you eventually see old pier 3 and hear all the subs welcoming you home with very long blasts of their whistles, seeing family on the pier welcoming their boys home. Think about that and you'll be a bubblehead for life!
