Read Blind Mans Bluff and get an idea what Cold War ops were like.
There isn't much more to say to a guy who believes that making coffee behind the lines was as dangerous as submarining.
Or you can ask your Captain Roger's which of course you don't have the courage to do.
You never disappoint.
Now that I know where he is, I am looking him up and will be sending him your posts.
What do you suppose his reaction will be?
The VFP are gonna love you.
I've given your comment some thought.
I have never seen a report suggesting that carelessness was a factor in either loss.
You want to piss on some graves?
Have at it.
I will say that I would like you to contact Captain Tom Rogers and explain to him that he was not a frontline warrior and...
No SSBN's in Olangapo. We didn't hit liberty ports. We flew over to Rota, Spain relieved the other crew, did a three week or so upkeep then underwater for 60/70 days mostly on alert, return to Rota, fly home and three months later rinse/repeat.
Submarine sailors are REMF's? Tell that to the...
I totally get that.
I think they got the REMF name from those who embellished their service and posed as front line warriors. You know, the guys who never go outside the wire and then later on blather about the hell of being in theatre.
In any event, it is sport in the military, whatever...
Uh, Oh, another in the REMF community is not happy.
I have already posted about my navy experience. If you are interested and know anyone who is smart maybe get them to help you read those posts. Sorry but there are no stick figures used.
I didn't join the Marines because they didn't have...
AJ, a REMF, makes sense.
Captain Rogers would have been on at least 4 boats and at least one of them would have been a SSBN, based on him wearing a patrol pin which were only given to those serving on SSBN's.
Division Officer tour.
In his case he would also have...
I watched the video. Usual distortions and answers to questions I don't ask.
War is an abomination.
Acknowledging that doesn't change the fact that humans have fought and destroyed each other since there have been humans.
It's not pretty and is so unneccessary yet it appears to be the human...
Looks like he is legit.
He appears to have enlisted in 1967 and after a couple of years was picked up for a commissioning program where USN pays for college and then commissions you.
One of those programs was NESEP where you would receive a STEM degree and then likely go. into the Nuclear...
You might have missed this bit of whimsy.
While a world rages
suffers from war
crimes against nature
one small light
bright as bright can be
a mighty little boat sails on
for what we are supposed to be
Let's get Tom Roger's sorted before we move on to the rest of the litter.
Nice try at changing the subject.
Um, so that is a no to answering the question?
There certainly was a far less emotional way to duck it.
Insecure people lash out just like you when challenged.
