was blackballed from doing so when we caused $30,000 worth of damage to the Officer's Club in Monterey, Ca.
The entire crew thought it was worth the cost.[/quote]
bluesbob, when were you on Lyndie? My dad was COMDESRON 7 back in the '60's and Lynde McCormick was one of his ships.
I'm retired Navy and a Shellback.
I'll watch this topic closely as I'll be returning to BM this summer.
I work out at San Clemente Island. Here's a link to my website - click on the link to Youtopia 2010, I did Panotopia.
I also did TMA-3 at BM 2009.
I'm not burnt, just lightly toasted.
