Oh, thank you so much Janan. I really enjoyed my tour.
Here I am in chief's uniform. And the Navy was good to me financially and still reaping many benefits today including free medical for my family for over 25 years now.

Ja Nan sent me a PM, asking me to post a pic. I said that I would try to see what I could find, as it's been a while. I rummaged through some boxes of old prints, (we didn't have digital cameras then) and this is all I could find. I'll have to ask my wife where some more are. I know there is one, where when I was about three years old, my mother dressed me in a sailor suit[IMG]
