Had a great time and now wish I had stayed aboard instead of being transfered to shore duty (USN and MCRTC Pasadena) - worst duty ever. I have renewed some past memories with several BC shipmates in the past couple years. I remember the ORISKANY incident and pulling alongside her to assist in repairs.

A low point, with a good ending, was when Master Chief "Cash" Register, informed me in his Mr Hyde mode (As in Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde), to report to the bridge for captain's mast,only to find out that it was an honorly mast for a number of the electronics gang and a handshake from Capt.
