I saw a comment you made on another blog about eating complex carbs...a great idea for a blog...you should write one about what types of complex carbs you eat.

I totally agree with you. I too wish that we had some strong leaders that believed in keeping our Military strong. If they keep disrespecting the people who have served and who is currently serving; there may not be a strong military in our future. And as you know, that may come back and bite us in the you-know-what when we really need one. I guess, that is another reason why I have opted to stay in -- to try and keep our beloved military strong. That is one reason why I am here, to stay and keep being fit if I should ever be called on to serve (LOL). John I'll leave you with this "in my books you are and alway will be serving your country -- once military always will be military -- Ooorah"!

I know, I always hated the "choke and rope". Can you believe, this will be the first time since 1997 that I will not have to be measured?

Plus John being in the Navy keeps me in fit (LOL). In fact, next weekend I have my Bi-annual Navy Physical Readiness test (PRT). I am so ready for it. As of right now, I am doing the 1.5 mile under 13 min and exceeding way over what they want me to do on the push-ups/ sit-ups! From seeing your pics, I'm sure you would have killed the PRT if you were still in.

John,
When I was on the Carl Vinson, I was a designated striker. I started out as an Aviation Boatswain mate (valet parker), then I strike into Aviation Ordinance but didnít like it so I ended up as an Aviation Structural Mechanic (AMS). While serving active I only made it to E3 (sad but true). However, in the Naval Reserves, I was enlisted in the Seabees. My rate is a Steel worker (SW) and I am currently a First Class Petty Officer. Unfortunately, I didnít make E7 due to cut backs and demanding of all of the Seabee rates. And as an E6 in the Navy, I am considered high year tenure (22 years). So as of now, I have 24 years; I should be retired and I could, but I couldn't collect until I am 59 years old. Since I am only 46 years old, I still have a long ways to go to collect. Plus the Naval Reserves has a volunteer unit (called the VTU) for people that want to stay in. Itís a program where you donít get paid, you canít make rank, you still have the benefits and the recognition as if you were an active reservist, and youíre able to get the retirement points that is awarded to you on the courses and weekends. I know it sounds crazy for doing it for free (giving up a weekend and the possibility of getting called up), but I truly love the Navy and I am truly having fun doing it. AND who knows, maybe weíll get a GREAT leader someday that will lift the high year tenure status and will allow me to make rank and pay me for my service (not holding my breath). If you donít have any issues -- we should be Spark friend Ė request me if you like and Iíll do the same. Take care and God bless.
