I was there. Captain told me to put all my things in this large box. It went out on the courier a couple hours later, I saw it leave.. an hour later the ship incident happened and I was extended another 30 days or so.. with no change of clothes, etc..
Launch crew member.. in my spare time armed dog handler.. with no ammo! meanwhile I had bullets ''zing'' past me several times while walking around the post. I was a very young kid at the time. The Highest Hawk missile Latrine in the world served us well. haha Met a lot of great people there. Learn a lot from all of you. Hope your life is going well for you.
