Aug. 11, 2006
When I was commissioned at the Northwestern Midshipman School I volunteered for hazardous duty and was assigned as a Naval Gunnery Lesion Officer and was immediately sent to San Diego to catch a carrier heading for Hawaii while my classmates got 30 days leave. When I got to Hawaii I was sent to the OD 0ffice and was given a huge paper with the names of over 200 ships in the fleet. They told me to pick one and somehow I remembered something I read in the papers about the SLC so I picked it. Of all the brand new ships on the list I picked about the oldest. From there I was sent with the highest priority by air across the Pacific to the Philippines being "bumped" only once for packages of blood carrying a higher priority than mine at Guam.
