I guess I missed this roll call until now . USN, been around the world and to 3 county fairs. ROTC Surface Warfare Officer, but don't hold that against me. Mainly a gator sailor; got off active duty after Desert Storm, then did reserves, and still work for the Navy as a civilian. I have lots of good sea stories. They all start with "this is no B.S."!

USN 1983-2007. Mostly a Cold War guy chasing subs. After that, support stuff in the Middle East. Generally speaking, not a bad gig until the very end.

I met one of my now best friends about 15 years ago. He is a shortish, gruff, scraggly bearded, chain smoking, Harley riding, SOB and about a year older than I am. He also has a Masters in Electrical Engineering.

It turns out that I am a year or so too young for Vietnam and never served anyway. He wasn't. Didn't matter, he enlisted to go. Didn't find out that he was there for the first year or so. When I asked him what he did, he just said "lirp", which was meaningless to me. A few years later, I found out that lirp was LRRP, or Army Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol. A few years after that he started sharing stories of what he actually did over there.

So whenever you see one of these Canik Fanatiks drop an SF, SOCCOM, Recon, LRP/LRRP, chances are that they have some spine chilling stories to tell that you won't hear until you have known them for years, and maybe not even then (I am good friends with an ex-SEAL team commander who NEVER discusses anything about his service in the field - logistics, chain of command issues, sure, but never combat).

There is also a good chance that that old, gruff, scraggly bearded SOB is a bad MF'er.
