Do you know what a PBR Mk2B is or a MATC, Swift boat is or were or how about were the CCB-18 is at?
Ever heard of SBUXI OR SBU 12 AND 13. ever heard of NIOTC or an easy one for any one that has been Northern Hawk?
I was around prior to the MK5 being delivered to Coronado.
I knew about it but that was blue water stuff and seeing How I was Brown Water at that time it was something which did not I would rarely come in witn contact with unless SBU 12 came up to us for a joint exercise.
I was up at SBUXI and a Boat Captain of PBR's and left just as the change from unit to teams in 1994.
I was attached to SBU12 during Desert Shield and Storm, Where were you at?
Sounds to me like you know about the Amphib base, where were you stationed at?
By the way our drown proofing was held in the Sacramento River and the Mare Island pool .
long before there was a SWCC closed loop. We did the ground work for the new SWCC
which were transitioned from Boat Units after '94.
I was in NSW from 1982 till my retirement so it you what no difference to me what you believe
I have a broken back and a loss of hearing that reminds me of what I and my crew did!
Like I said if you served then thanks but never doubt my service, only wish I was young enough and physically able to go back and do it all again, but at least I did. Did You?
