long story , but I started out as a Bubblehead , went to TM school in Orlando , then sub school in Groton , first time through the escape tank with the Steinke hood , diver snatched me ten feet from the top , next two times in the pressure chamber blew my ear drums , graduated in the meanwhile and then Doc sent me packing to the surface fleet . Only so much skating a surface TM can do , so after a year on my first ship , they let me convert to GMG ... Had orders to Charleston Mendel Rivers SSN686 ..

The crazy part is when I went to Sub School in Groton they had stopped using the escape tank.

Yeah someone else told me that , and said they use a suit of some kind now , instead of the Steinke hood , I was there in 1974 , I enjoyed Groton , except everything was uphill , a buddy bought a tricked out Sportster from a chopper shop not far from the base and rode it home to Louisiana , had to be a fun trip there .. Thought he was sick for paying $1800 for it ...

I was recently at Redstone Arsenal for some ATF training. All I have to say is Huntsville Al was awful.

I'm lurking about here, still wonking on acquiring a Sharknose (getting close to a deal though), but I'll toss my PC (patrol cap) in the ring:

NY Army National Guard, 1998-present, on active status since 2001 working Counterdrug and one tour in Iraq (OIF 08-10). I'm a 91X4O (Unit Maintenance Supervisor), and I'm hoping to pick up my third rocker before too long, but I have to do a new level of NCOPD (they conjured up "Master Leader Course" prior to promotion to MSG/1SG now)...and I haven't written an APA Paper since 1989!!
