Or some other entity? Which location? One of the ETD pilots is a good friend; lemme know if you need informal sponsorship help. He's in Sig at present, but also did a tour in Naples. Another friend just finished a tour in Gaeta if you need info for that area.

Congrats on your orders. (I'm expecting some any day now as well...but still here in SD.)
Submarine Tender in Sardinia. Spot job so I put on LCDR when I get there. I will only be there for about 16 months before the ship goes to Norfolk for overhaul. I should walk off while there.

Nice.

I fly in and out of Olbia all the time. Great looking place, although I've never had liberty there. What happens when the boat goes to the yards? Will you stay in Europe?

I will take it to the yards and go to shore duty. It is only a two year billet. The bigbill plan has me on shore duty until my 13 year (28 total) when I will take an at-sea billet to select for Commander.

Gotcha.

Beware of getting nabbed for an IA as the boat goes into the yards. REGNAV is culling the rank n file of sea duty folks whose boats are yard-bound, and, of course, they're nabbing people from shore duty left, right and sideways. I'll get mine by early next CY at the latest, in fact..... They just took our SupO.

Ia

Stands for Individual Augmentation.

Or, how to turn a sailor into a soldier with 14 days of fun-filled training in Ft Jackson, South Cackalacky and then on to one to two years boots-on-ground in fun-filled, picturesque Iraq or Afghanistan. We ALL gets to play. Yippeeee.

Cool! When you walk of you'll be close to my backyard.

EDIT: Never mind. I just saw your comments in the other thread.

Best!

Yeah, but I was gonna buy you

a Corsa Extra with the winnings.

Common now, how 'bout a lil affection for the Yid?

Dates: I'm thinking the Saturday prior, if that's not too early for you. Bottom line? You'll stay here at mi casa until we zoom away into the annals of cycling stupidity. However, I don't want you to have to take too much time off from Connor, work, etc. Team RAAM launched on Tues, 13June. Anytime that weekend prior should work, yes?

T-shirts. Lemme get this one to ya in the mail first (TOMORROW...I PROMISE...effin' work is sucking my will to live this week, plus one of our officers came in sick, got us all sick, and--no kidding--just tested positive as a TB carrier. Great, b!tch gave me the consumption....) Take a look at the ones we've got already.
