    Gun quals for my boat

    My whole submarine crew went to the range on base today to qualify on the Beretta. Good times for all, I qualified expert so I get to wear a little silver 'E' on my uniform ribbon However, I was sort of scared by some of the guys who got sent away either because they didn't know how to operate the weapon or can't follow range commands. Cease fire really means cease fire, not try to squeeze off your remaining rounds. Oh well, We get to qualify on the M-16 and shotgun tomorrow. Looking forward to it as well

    SSN 775 USS Texas the second of the brand new Virginia class fast attacks. Man did I get lucky, especially since I've got a change of homeport to Hawaii in a few years.

    Congrates on firing expert. I wore my expert ribbon with oak leaf (expert in M16 and .38) with pride. Hawaii uh. I lived on Oahu for five years. My ex was stationed at Scholfield Barracks. My oldest daughter was born there at Tripler Army Hospital. Beautiful island and weather. It’ll probably be better at Pearl Harbor than Scholfield Barracks.
