    I don't know if any of you remember the post about me joining the Navy on a SEAL contract. Well, I found out real quick that being a SEAL was just not my thing. So for the past few weeks I've been attending my A school at the Center for SEABEES in Wichitaw Falls, TX. training to be an electrician. Its pretty cool, and its allot better waking up and knowing you have some job security. Instead of getting laid off and doing odd jobs having to pay rent and all the other things that go along with being a 20 year old civilian in this economy.

    Well anyway, I just wanted to write and say hi to all my friends here at the BOC. I got a laptop and wireless internet now so Ill be able to keep up with you all.

    Oh yeah, if anyone knows any good catfishing spots around this town let me know. I got the catfishing fever!:big_smile:

    My nephew wanted to be a seal as well but after training with them he ended up getting medical discharge, My oldest brother retired form service as a electrician and fell into a good job real quick, learn as much as you can because it will help you out in the long run. good luck

    Congrats on making it through boot camp! I hope that you enjoy your time as a SeaBee. I have an uncle who was one for a while. Glad to see you back up on the boards!

    Good job Clayton, dont worry about not being a SEAL if it is meant to happen then it will. Also being a Seabee will teach you mad skills for the outside world so it aint that bad. GO NAVY bro
