Know I'm late on this but just wanted to honor all those who have served in our military services.
Thank you for your dedicated service to our country!

You're more than welcome OUfan and thank you for your long-term service in the Navy!
My wife, son and I made our annual Veterans Day visit to my father-in-law's burial site yesterday. It was real nice to see the cemetery finally installed the veterans bronze plaque at the foot of his grave honoring his service in the Marine Corps during the later part of WWII. While we had to pay for the footer being poured, and granite base, it's nice the Veterans Adminstration supplied the plaque/marker for free upon submission of his honorable discharge papers.

You're welcome SJ and thank you for your service to our country!
I remembered you, OUfan and showtime48 were all submariners in the Navy.

Yep, I spent 20 years in and 12 of it underwater. I was onboard the USS Hawkbill when this video was shot by CNN in 1999.
They were doing an hour long special about us. The online article is here.
