Best Friends Everyone at the training group was great. I enjoyed working with you all.
Best Moment I had a lot of fun at ATGPAC. I got to ride almost every class of surface ship that was in active service in the Navy and Coast Guard inventory, from coastal patrol boats to nuclear aircraft carriers. I learned a lot there.
I always enjoyed attempting to convince ships CO/XO that we really were "Here to help".
Worst Moment Taking serious flack from a very senior Captain (RADM selectee) of a large-deck aviation platform who was not happy with my team's assessment of his crew's performance. His guys couldn't even find a fire, let alone put one out. I believe that the man even referred to me as "incompetent". In my opinion, he was a self-important buffoon.
