One thing about being in the military is that you can be places you would like to be, such as gary con II. I would have loved to meet different people from around the US, but my scheduled leave was made about 1.5 weeks before GCII. But the upside to this is that in about a year i can finally get to a homeport and be stationed on a ship. So I'll be watching the forums for anything that happened at GCII.
The best kind of chewouts are the ones done by a Chief.
