Please excuse me , I have been watching this site almost everyday from work .I dont log on very often (paper trail etc etc ) however I do feel I am getting to know a few of the characters on this site.One thing that I find funny is the use of the term ''Walt'' .Now I used to think a ''Walt'' was a person that went on and on about something he/she had no idea about or a person that claims to be something they are not. I have noticed a few posters on this site are actually lacking in any modern military time and some of the nautical types have not actually ever been to sea. I find this all highly amusing as these very same people tend to be the loudest and most annoying of a gang of wannabes. I dont claim to be anything special myself , I was a submariner but I left over 15 years ago .Yet I really do think I have spent more time on the''crest of a wave '' than a lot of the regulars in this place. (that is a hard call seeing as I was a submariner) .It takes all sorts I guess and everyone is welcome. I just wish the ''Armchair admirals, the shorebased medics and the hangers on'' would just watch listen and learn from those that have been to sea or have been on a'' two way firing range''.
