Started on this board late 1990's.  Was very active for years.  Lost passwords, new logins seemed to be locked.  Finally got back in. 
I was in the Navy 1962 - 1970, got out as ET1(SS).  Qualified on two diesel boats, Sea Devil SS-400 and Pomfret SS-391.  Later qualified on two boomers, Sam Rayburn and Nat Greene.  Got out, got an engineering degree, worked at Mare Island 1975 - 1994.  When peace broke out and M.I. closed went to work @ Vandenberg AFB.  I was at "Bash at the Ranch."

Welcome back, Bob.

Jon Krup, Skimmer - Minesweeps here. I was at the Bash at the Ranch too, also Cowboy's Last Bash. His wife, Sue, and I have kept in touch over the years. She lives in Washougal, Washington, across the Columbia from Portland.

You and I are practically neighbors. I live in Oxnard.

A lot of water has passed under our keels since you have been gone, and you have a lot of catching up to do.

You might also check in with Gentry's BBS. It's a bit more active than here, but not by much.

Again, welcome back.
