    Ken I always admire my shipmates that served in the earlier conflicts. I did 2 tours of Desert Shield / Desert Storm but it was in no way close to a real conflict in my opinion. I proudly served in the US Navy for 12 years though.

    USS Blue Ridge (LCC-19) - Yokosuka Japan
    USS Stark (FFG-31) - Mayport Florida
    USS Aubrey Fitch (FFG-34) - Mayport Florida
    USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) - Mayport Florida
    Recruiting Duty - NRS Sanford Florida

    Tank you so much for your service. My dad was in Vietnam but was fortunate to leave just before the initial fighting started.

    Yes thank You for your service. It really means a lot for most of us. I come from a military family myself. My Grandfather was a POW in Vietnam. He was a fighter pilot and was shot down on June 14 1965. Was there for almost 8 years. So, again THANK YOU!
