Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
JERRY RICKETTS RM3, JOE RM2, ANDY QM2 AND ALL OPS DIV,SMALL SHIP BUT REAL FAST 11 KNOTS ON A GOOD DAY

Best Moment
BEING ON THE SIGNAL BRIDGE ALL THE TIME AND PULLING QM WATCHES ALSO, VC GUN BOAT CAME TO GET US ONE NIGHT ,BUT A LSMR BLEW THEM OUT OF THE WATER BEFORE THEY GOT TO US. THEN A SWIFT BOAT CAME OUT TO CHECK ON US AND THE CO TOLD ME TO TAKE THE RED FILTER OFF THE SIGNAL LIGHT AND SHINE IT ON THE BOAT , THE SWIFT TOLD ME TO TURN IT OFF BEFORE THEY SHOOT IT OUT !!

   

Worst Moment
LEAVING MY FRIENDS.OF COURSE THEY OFFERED ME SM2 AND A PBR, A FEW MONTHS EARLIER I WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT, TO LATE WANTED TO GO HOME AND SURF WHILE I WAS STILL IN ONE PIECE. AOGS ARE A SCARY RIDE AND SOME OF THE OTHER ONES GOT HIT BY VC FIRE OR MINES IN THE RIVER OR RIVER MOUTH.
