1987 - Dollies Tavern, Olongapo City, Central Luzon, Philippines

I was recently perusing through my Navy enlistment files when I stumbled upon this photograph hidden amongst the papers. The actual date of this picture is unknown but it was taken mid month, December, 1987, at Dollies Tavern. Dollies Tavern no longer exists but it used to be located in the New Ever Hotel on Fendler Street Extension, just off Magsaysay Drive, behind Police Station "B" in downtown Olongapo City, Central Luzon, Philippines.

1986 - Storekeeper Class A School, Meridian, MS

Following Navy Basic Training, I attended the Storekeeper Class A School, located in Meridian, MS.  The Storekeeper (SK) rating was awarded once the technical requirements of the Naval Technical Training Command (NTTC) were met.  As of 2009, the United States Navy consolidated the Storekeeper and Postal Clerk ratings into a single rating which is now called Logistics Specialist

Welcome

Greetings.  This is my first attempt at operating a BLOG so please be patient as I struggle through the pains of getting it operational.  The purpose of this BLOG is two-fold.  First of all, in my never ending quest to learn about and to improve upon my poor writing skills, I thought a BLOG would be a good medium for me to practice.  Not only will it allow me to learn new things about writing, but it will also help me to learn more about the structure and presentation of ideas.  The second purpose, and probably more importantly, I will use this as another means to communicate with those around me.  Forget Facebook, MySpace or Twitter.  If you want to learn the inane details of my adventures, follow me here.
