SSGN is the last type of submarine I served on. (Two separate tours). Earned my dolphins on an SSN.

I was the Independent Duty Hospital Corpsman onboard. As the only medical person onboard I was known as “Doc”.

Mine was just something I came up with on the spot. Since I now have a great granddaughter I thought it appropriate. Born in 1955.

Good thing that I will always be one year away from being a codger, since I was born in '56...

BTW, initials JW, living in NC (thought that it was obvious, but who knows...)

I joined a golf forum about 25 years ago and needed a screen name. I'm from Ohio and I'm left handed, so I came up with OhioLefty. I know, that took a lot of thought. I use it in multiple forums that span many different interests.

qballbandit -
I suck at pool, but my friends always wanted to play when we were out at our local haunts. I started stealing the Qball, so we could play darts instead, which is where I won their money and drank for free!
