*checks profile*

If you're over fifty, there's only a .05% chance you'd be on any of those ships to begin with.

No, it was pretty awesome. 80 degrees, perfect humidity.

Weather looks much better than midwest US. Here's an idea, let's stop militarizing the planet - save money, save lives.

Pretty much the same here.

Never assume, subtard.

The US military uses about 400,000 barrels of oil a day doing stuff like making content for this slide show.  You'd better appreciate it!

No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

I love living in a place that doesn't have real person weather.

It looks pretty amphibious to me.

BTDT, but many years ago.
So long ago that they gave us a shot of whisky after we were done with the UNREP.

I swear those two guys look like people I knew from my last ship...both were Boatswains too.

And we need people doing this why?

Waste of time, money and lives.

Because this book pretty much nailed it.

The average age of the Civmars working for MSC (the Kanawa) is 48...it was probably a long, messy day for them.

Yeah, but I was referring to the entire ARG...  There are only a handful of folks on those MSC ships.

As someone who deployed with BatARG/22MEU in 2009 (and again to Haiti in 2010), I'm getting a kick.

"Gunner's Mate Seaman Chance Philips, from Hibbing, Minn., aboard amphibious transport dock ship USS Mesa Verde, prepares to fire the shot line for a replenishment-at-sea  "

Jeeeeeeeeeeez.

Been there done that many times . Don't miss it .

Yep, here in Wellington NZ, it's sunny, the slightest breeze, maybe low 20's Celcius today (low 70's in Fahrenheit, so the internet tells me).

Certainly not complaining.

I had no idea here was a ship named Mesa Verde, that's cool!

We have this and this and this....if you're into the whole local thing.

There's an episode of Mighty Ships where they follow a Navy resupply/transport/somethingorother ship (can you tell I'm Canadian?) and show the whole process start to finish. It was pretty cool, but then, so is every other episode.

The people who choose this profession deserve no sympathy. It was their choice.

They had the chance to become IT admins and network administrators but they blew it.

I do know about those, but Mesa Verde's in Colorado, it'd be like naming a ship the USS Bandelier or Chaco Canyon (which I also think would be cool).
 
2014-02-16 06:08:39 PM  
Pfft...let me know when there is green water over the bow. Until then, I'll be on my rack.

Yeah, I was mentioning those because of your profile...

Anyway, the Navy does get names right from time to time.

Yep. Every ship I ever served on is long gone.

Served a year and 3 months (total) at sea on FFG's. Cured my desire to ever go on a ship again. I guess a ferry would be OK...

There's a joke to be made here...

The Kanawha was hit by a rough wave in 2009 doing Unreps in similar weather. I've seen the video, it's gnarly. Four people injured.
