This is funny, and unreal at the same time. I am a native Californian, when I decided to go Navy and signed up in 1979, it was because my Father, two Uncles, and my Brother were Navy, and I used to hear all the places they went, and things they did.

I had a buddy who signed up with me and we were to go in on the buddy program, well I ended up going to boot camp, two months later due to graduating High School.

Long story short, I went to boot in San Diego, was T.A.D for 6 months on the USS Dixon sub tender awaiting Hospital Copsman "A" school, then went to "A" school in San Diego @ the Naval Regional Medical Center. After graduation from "A" school, I filled out my dream sheet, my third choice was San Diego, you guessed it, they station me not only in San Diego, but to the Naval Regional Medical center.

That was the extent of my travels in the USN.

LOL, almost never, it was the Dixon and Sperry I believe, we called them the USS never sails. We did do a shake down during my mess tour for about four days, but you're right.

I noticed last year when we were at the point, both ships were gone, and the pier, or at least I think that was the sopt.

Navy Boot camp San Diego 1990
USS O'Brien 1991
Oak Knoll Nav Hosp 1992
USS Mars Decom Cruise
Nav Med Cen San Diego (Balboa) till 1997

I've been on two cruises, one with the OB the other with the Mars, and I will admit that I somewhat missed going on deployments. On the other hand, the BS can be overwhelming.

I'm a SoCal native from Alhambra, and proud to serve and be the first member of my family to have ever served in any branch of the military. I'm part of the first generation of my family to be born in this country so that's a pretty big point of pride for myself.

I'm currently still in South Dakota and on the fence about staying in, applying for retraining status or getting out and taking my AA and finishing my BA to start working on alternative energy.

It's an honor to be among you all.

Edit: I've passed through:
Germany
Bangor, Maine (the greeters are all so nice)
Shannon, Ireland
Las Vegas, NV
