haha, my squadron is on the Reagan, and I couldnt agree with you more.

That being said, I was in VAQ-129 in Whidbey Island before I came to VAW-113 in 2004, but 113 is about to be my last duty station, as I transfer in 2 weeks.

ETA: are we talking last place stationed, or final duty station before getting out/retiring? Because, if so, and I remember, I will be back in 12 years to update this thread.

1990 Point. Mugu PMTC, but actually worked from the Seabee base at Port. Hueneme. ET for the Surface Craft Division boats doing drone retrieval and other range op support for the Range. They (we, me) also did runs out to the Santa Cruz and San Nicolas islands to transport vehicles and material by landing craft.

There were benefits to the job but the description was kind of misleading as described by the USN. It was more or less sea duty while on a shore billet. I might have spent more actual sea time at that duty station than I did on the previous assignment on a cruiser. Not all at once mind you. But more time in total. No sea pay or hazardous duty pay of any kind. Made me wish I had stayed on the Halsey. Damn good cruiser that ship was! Also prompted me to get out of the Navy faster than if I had stayed on a real sea billet.

Fort Polk with the legs. The home unit was deployed in the sandbox so I was stuck in the rear supervising new joes. We painted and spiffed up the barracks only to have them get destroyed by the ungrateful a-holes when they got back.

Base was also undergoing a transition from cavalry/mech to infantry. Lots of fights during the transition. I got into a few drunken ones myself... no troubles though.

I was hauling the cargo off the buses and into the triage area. I also had to track every person that went through their from a TOE other than EURCOM and that was a pain. If you went through Landstuhl from OIF/OEF/Kosovo/etc. and not from EURCOM between 3/2004 and 3/2005 than I was the guy that kept track of you and made sure you were fed when you got there and kept comfortable until you left.
