Not An Officer But a Gentleman..
Most people don't know much about my
Naval career,so I've decided to post a few pictures of the two ships I served aboard.
Well, I was a gas turbine systems electrician during my six-year
obligation. I must say marine engineering is not an easy task.
My first ship, the infamous USS Stark will always bring vivid
to my mind. The ship was on deployment in the Persian Gulf when she
was attacked May 17, 1987. I suppose my survival speaks to
the fact that I have a greater purpose on this earth. I am truly blessed.

My second ship, the USS Philippine Sea,
afforded me yet another opportunity to travel through the wonderful Suez
Canal. I am
a proud "plankowner" of this fine vessel. Additionally, I was the 5th
overall and the 2nd engineer to earn the Enlisted Surface Warfare
Specialist (ESWS) designation aboard the
Philippine Sea. Basically the
ESWS qualification says that I know a little about each major system
aboard that ship.
