About Me: Male, 49, Crane, IN, member since Nov 2009
Simply put, I'm a Submariner. Have been since Feb 16, 1996 when I got my dolphins.
Submarines and submariners are viewed as implements and practitioners of the black art
[More]s… backstabbing, bushwhacking sonuvabitches. We slip up from hiding below the waves and blow ships to pieces in a totally unfair, unsportsmanlike fashion. Any way you cut it, that’s the way we made our living.
We black sheep… we predatory sharks… we saltwater sneaky Petes stick together.
We are a very small group when you consider the total world population and the percentage that never had any desire to crawl into a steel tank and sink out of sight.
Submariners, when all is said and done, are special unique people who are the only ones who truly understand each other and ever will.
I have an odd since of humor, but that goes along with the submarine life. I love the work and the guys I lead, but hate the time spent away from my family and friends.
I have two great boys (10 and 6) that I hardly get to see due to being deployed so much.
I love to run, read and cook. Luckily, I run most of the calories off from my cooking.
