Navy 75-81, USS Memphis SSN-691, fast attack submarine.
Last month I attended the Memphis' decommissioning in CT. A bittersweet moment, but I had the honor to walk her decks one last time and connected up with many great people that I hadn't seen it 30 years.

Thank you to all who served are serving and those who never came home.

U.S. Navy..... Second generation.... Dad was USN in WW2 South Pacific theater. In on five invasions... He saw a lot of action....
I was in the Navy from 58 till 62. Served aboard the USS North Hampton CLC1 for about 24 +/- months. Crossed the ''pond'' (Atlantic ocean) several times. The most ''action'' I saw was two hookers knife fighting in a bar in Palma. I did a lot of ''under cover'' work over there with sometimes questionable female locals for a usually ''negotiated fee'' for a litany of ''selected'' activities, preformed during a limited span of time, but I better not write about that 'cause I would get scolded and edited.....lol....

I greatly revere you guys that gave a big hunk of your life in service of this country. I look up to you and honor you for your service. You are the ones I am referring to when I say ''God bless our vets'' ..... It is NOT FOR MYSELF. I did nothing but I am so proud to have served with great shipmates, including Marines.....

Nuff said for now.... God bless our troops and keep them safe .....
