Ok Im making this thread for all of the Vets out there to tell one of you greatest escapades. If you cant due to emotion that is fine but lets hear some of you funniest or most harrowing moments. To start it off I spent 9 years Active Duty in the Navy, I was stationed onboard a Frigate (USS Reasoner FF1063) for my first ship. Now to get you specs on this ship it is about 438 Ft Long and I think 47ft at the Beam or close to that. Now Im sure you have all heard of Peter Pan the Movie well when onboard ship it gets to be very boring at times. You will be underway no land in sight for days and sometimes weeks. When you do see land it could be just going thru one of the canal systems weeee LOL. Well anyways when you hit rough seas The Bow (pointy end) will go up and down (pitch) with the Swell and wave action. What you do is go to an open space (room) that you hopefully will not hurt anything. When the Bow goes up you get ready to jump, as the bow come down from the swell you jump as high as you can go. I was able to jump and hold on to the overhead (ceiling) that was about 15ft high, Then you ride the waves for a little bit while hanging on then you need to get down. Well this can be the hardest thing you have ever done, as the bow comes up with the swell you need to let go of the overhead, if you do this right you are only jumping down about 2-3ft. If you do this wrong and time it to where the bow is going down as you jump then you are doubling the distance that you just jumped up. Luckly I was able to time it somewhat correct but I hit my elbow on something metal which it didnt like and it hurt like Heck to say the least. Ill post some more stories in a little while so come on Vets lets gets some yaall aint going to believe this going.
