Now that I am old and everything hurts a lot
Now I have this morbid fear of someday I may not!

Courage is realizing that you are scared to death
but saddle up and ride anyway.

Comments: I was that crazy "chunky" IC3 who had his work center (by myself) in the middle of engineering berthing. I remember fondly the EM shop and the EM's, the Dive Locker, and so many of the crew.
I also remember the last days of vietnam and searching for the parts of the plane that went down and left parts arrayed off the coast. I remember going north and escorting the refugees to Subic Bay.
I wish all shipmates "fair winds and following seas!"
