    You wouldn't believe how many bathrooms there are on an aircraft carrier. Of course, as Chief Engineer, it was me who got the call when one of them had a problem. Yes, the food was almost always pretty good, but what really kept me in was that they kept promising me helicopter rides. Rick

    When I finally had enjoyed all of South East Asia that I could stand the company decided that since I was the longest term guy there that they would throw me a going away party. They traded some Navy guy a helicopter ride for six cases of frozen steaks for the party. We NEVER had steaks. It was great.

    Of course we used my Chinook for the ride. And at my request it was a very bumpy ride. :coolgrin:
