    I am a long time shooter (since June 1961 at the age of 6.) If you wan't to get to know this old sailor, let me know.

    I learned at the knee of an original "Frogman" (BM1/UDT, Navy Rifle Team, WWII/Korean Conflict.) The man survived the attack on Pearl Harbor (where 1/2 of a ship was sank from beneath him) and 7 more ships during the remainder of WWII.

    Yeah, this old Vietnam era Veteran has been "around the block" a few times.

    I was sworn in on 7/19/73 and missed getting shipped off to Vietnam by about five months. I served as, in the day, what we called Aviation Machinist's Mate, Jet (ADJ.) for the EA6B "Prowler" on J-52-P408 Pratt & Whitney Turbojet engines.

    Sadly, I remained stateside at USNAS Whidbey Island, Ault Field. Oak Harbor, Washington.

    Those were the days.

    Thanks for your service, Brother! Civilians have no understanding when it comes to Liberty. Those of us that served, have a soft spot in our hearts for our Constitution. Our oath to protect it against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, never expired.
