Veterans Get Together at the Pub


Recommended Posts

I always look forward to the Veterans get together on our cruise.  No reason we can't have one here.  Share your information and let's swap stories.  Steve Hintz, US Navy 1972-1981 and I served on submarines.  Spent most of my sea duty out of Pearl Harbor.

Two branches for me. 

 

Marines, 1974-78, aviation ordnance.  Loaded ordnance on A-4 Skyhawks.  The best close air support airplane ever built.

 

Navy 1978-84, nuclear power program.  Served on USS Texas (CGN-39) and USS Nimitz (CVN-68) running reactors.

Got him to cruise by suggesting a ship can also be “fun”.  

 

What are these veteran get togethers of which you speak?

Every ship that I've been on has a veteran's get together as some point during the cruise. It's in the daily announcements. I've always enjoyed them.
