Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS HAPPY HOUR!"

Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is."

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

"Cmdr. Samuel Tanner was executive officer of Strike Fighter Squadron 34, based at Naval Air Station Oceana, Va. The firing decision came immediately after non-judicial punishment proceedings, a Navy news release stated. Capt. Christopher Murdoch, the commander of Carrier Air Wing 2, made the decision to fire Tanner, who has been temporarily assigned to the staff of Commander, Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic."

I do believe that Commander Tanner's career is pretty much in the toilet.
Cmdr. Samuel Tanner was fired Friday after receiving a citation for drunken driving.

I am really surprised by the lack of common sense when this happens.
A loss to the Navy and its investment in the officer and a loss to the individual and his naval career after 15 years.

Agreed on that Jim.
I work for the Air Force and the Retired and prior Air Force guys I work with are amazed by the numbers of COs/XOs/SEAs that the Navy relieves.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
