Navy grey buses that put to sea and traveled in harms way jam packed with red blooded Patriots. "Any time Baby, anytime" was more than a motto. I also spent ten years serving those long black tube shaped ships that regularly sunk filled with semen. Yeah, those too.

Been 18 years since I have been there. I still miss it and them. Like Bo Jangles, I still grieve the ones we lost.

Ever seen a sixteen cylinder diesel that had two crank shafts in one block where the cylinders were home to two pistons each that rotated in opposite directions and arrived at the top dead center simultaneously? My question at the time was "Why, Sweet Jesus, would they do that?" It was rather large. The answer was not long in coming. Do you know why?
