:D :D :D Too funny, even funnier because it's true. The place I work at now is about 20%+ ex navy right down to the former MS2 they hired as an outside contractor in the cafe. I have to print this out and bring it in for them!

I have to admit that after reading some of it I have to be thankful that I was on a sub out of Kings Bay because I usually did get to go to Disney World every other weekend, but I had to be locked inside for 3 months at a time. Oh yeah, when our menu said steak we got steak, that was the advantage of there only being 170 people on board.
