getting ready for the Stennis Tiger Cruise this will be my third one and its great getting to spend time with my son at his job. Just wondering if any of you other dads are friends of Bill W.

He got out because he was tired of slakers being rewarded, homos in berthing, being away for 6 to 8 months. The new USN has been neutered by obummer. They are no longer a fighting force. They now have to ask the LT how not to piss off the PC crowd before they can kill an enemy.

Mr. Beck: Please let me share this with you: A friend once told me many years ago that life isn't tough, it's the people in it that make it tough. I have found this to be true! Bad things happen to everyone. My son has suffered adversity, too. But like I said in my post ... he knows now what he might like to do as well as what he definitely doesn't want to do. He's currently a Nuke, so you may read into that what you may. Odds are, he'll be OK, as your son probably will also. You feel for your son as any good dad would. Maybe the crap that happened to him will "steel" him. I am a political writer and I concur with the PC stuff you alluded to. I never thought I would live long enough to witness what is currently going on in this country. All best to you and yours.

My Sailor got out after six years, he made PO1. It was very sad when he told me the very cool flashlight we gave him was stolen from him in the very small world of CIWS. Additionally his other job working security, he brought his $1000 camera into the security room down by the galley, he went for rounds and some low life stole his $1000 camera. I personally witnessed skaters and work avoiders on my 2 Tiger cruises. My kid worked his ass off, but the skaters knew which ass to kiss and were praised. Finally the witness of Homo sexual sex in berthing was enough. My Sailor did his six and left the rest to others. I was so sad to see that the USN is just another soap opera with all the ongoing PC nonsense. ISN'T Stennis a WARSHIP, or is it a social experiment?

My Nuke son has about four months left on a six-year hitch. He went on shore in Pearl for the first time in his deployment and spent some time on the beach and then went into the rain forest. He dove into a jungle-like pool of water while it rained and told me he got a bit of a feel for what it must have been like in 'Nam, Republic of (yes, I'm 49-years older than he). So you see, he learned a little more than Navy life. Can't wait for his return to southern New Mexico. The Navy molded him and now he has an idea of what he might like to do in life, and conversely, what he definitely doesn't want to do. I hope all bodes well for each and every man and woman aboard the Stennis.

Hi group,hope to meet all who are going on this tiger.This will be my third on the Stennis and more than likley my last as Son will have Shore duty next two years. Love to hear from others going and OBTW any other friends of Bill W. making the trip?

Thanks! Yes for sure the tiger cruise is the least of our concerns. We could have still gone but just felt without Cody we wouldn't enjoy as much.
It's still up in the air whether they can control these flare ups. Worse case he would be discharged. And yes, We believe is God's perfect plan. Thanks again!

I just read through the thread, and while I share your disappointment and concern for Cody's health, I'm happy he's in good hands at Balboa, and will heal. I know he's tough because you don't make rescue swimmer without intense focus and determination. There will be other deployments, and Tiger Cruise opportunities, for you guys. God knows what He's doing, and He's doing it for your good, as well as Cody's. Hold fast friend!

I had planned on it paid and everything, but son Cody developed a severe infection in his colon. He has since been admitted to Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego. Maybe we will get another chance another deployment.
Comment by Barry Norton on June 7, 2016 at 6:30pm
I'm going Tiger Cruising at the end of this deployment. I've done a lot of exciting things, in my life, but this will probably top them all. Anyone else planning to go?
