Happy SUNday! – last day in the Navy

Remembering back to that March day in 1997 when I retired from twenty-two years of service in the United States Navy. Aerographer’s Mate Senior Chief Petty Officer (meteorology).

Carol and Chris – 1997

This was the last time I wore the uniform. Carol traveled around the world with me for the entire 22 years that I was in and we were able to be together when I was stationed in Japan and Puerto Rico. Of course, there was plenty of stateside duty too. Three ships – USS Midway (CV-41) Japan, USS Forrestal (CV-59) Florida, USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) Florida.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! – Chris
