  1. RIP shipmate. IMO he should be posthumously awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for his actions. This is the highest medal awarded for non-combat heroism. BACKGROUND: The Navy and Marine Corps Medal is the second highest non-combatant medal awarded by the United States Department of the Navy to members of the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. The decoration was established by an act of Congress on August 7, 1942. The Navy and Marine Corps Medal may be awarded to service members who, while serving in any capacity with the Navy or Marine Corps, distinguish themselves by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. Typically, it is awarded for actions involving the risk of one's own life. During the mid 20th century, the Navy and Marine Corps Medal has been awarded instead of the Silver or Gold Lifesaving Medal, for sea rescues involving risk of life. This is due primarily to the creation of a variety of additional military decorations that are often considered more prestigious than the Lifesaving Medal. The Navy and Marine Corps Medal was first bestowed during the Second World War, although the first recipient is unknown. A famous recipient of the Navy and Marine Corps Medal was President John F. Kennedy who was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for service as Commanding Officer of a World War II Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109. CRITERIA: Distinguishing oneself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. For acts of lifesaving, or attempted lifesaving, it is required that the action be performed at the risk of one's own life DESCRIPTION: An eight-sided bronze medal with an eagle holding an anchor over a Globe. Heroism is inscribed below the globe.
  2. Ain't it the truth!
  3. Nope. The Captain will be held responsible. The Officer of the Watch on the bridge will also be held responsible and possibly the navigator. The Captain will more than likely lose command and will definitely affect his career. Take this from someone who served 25 years in USN. Mr. Mike who posted above also was in USN.
  4. Some Stilton Bleu Cheese would be awesome!
  5. Wow! Real cheese! Seriously, I may have to get a membership just for this.
  6. I have gotten manzanilla pimento stuffed olives at Gaisano Country Mall supermarket. Reasonably priced. I believe they are Goya brand from Spain. Some of the Pinoy relatives wanted to try. They damn near barfed!. The look of utter distress on their faces when they popped an olive in the mouth was priceless. Go figure.
  7. I used to think that the checkout was slow in Guam and PI. Nothing can compete with the slowness of the checkout counter in the Marshall Islands
  8. "Dave's not here, man!" (thanks Cheech and Chong)
  9. those six blasts followed by collision alarm will definitely get you up
  10. I spent 5 years working at Kwajalein Atoll. This is what it looks like when a Peacekeeper ICBM (multiple warhead) arrives at Kwaj after being launched from Vandenburg.
  11. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. - If you enjoyed the first, you will enjoy this one too. I really liked it. Pirates of the Carribean; Dead Men Tell No Tales - If you're not a fan of the series then you probably won't want to see. I found it very entertaining. I like the others in the series too.
  12. The Independencia's are pretty good cigars. Can't speak for the panatelas. I don't usually smoke that size. My faves are corona and robusto. I get the Independenia's online, usually much cheaper than in the Philippines. Antonio Gimenez and Don Urquillo are also good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4b7CyiMRvs

  14. The Big C sucks. Take it from one who knows personally.
