Anybody out there?
Hi Thumpgun79. Welcome to the forum. I'm sort of a Navy vet. Did my active in the USAF but did a couple years in the Navy Reserves. They called me an AIRDALE. 😁 I felt like a new breed of dog. 😁 My father served in the Navy doing duty in the South Pacific during WWII and I have two younger brothers that both did their 20 and retired out of the Navy.
