US Navy Reserves 1987 to 2011
Chief Gunner's Mate, Retired. (GMC)
Deployed Camp Taji, Iraq with the Army, 2008-2009 doing "Detainee Ops"

I saw some of the world:
Panama, Sigonella, San Diego, North Island, Norfolk, Ingleside, New Orleans, and the not so blissful Ft Bliss. During and after the deployment I landed in Kuwait a few days and Bagdad a few days.

I got a little hazy on some of these:
USS Gray (FF 1054), USS Antietam (CG-54), USS Princeton (CG 59), USS Milius (DDG 69), and some others for which I have the covers.
Texas will again lift it's head and stand among the nations. It ought to do so, for no country upon the globe can compare with it in natural advantages.
