I liked the line about that French guy Cousteau.
Brought back old memories MC. As junior man in Aux. division in the mid 60's I got the priviledge to go into the sanitary tanks for an inspection. Cycled water threw several times but only cleans the big stuff out. With an EAB and my skivies I inspected the hell out of that tank. Needless to say I was a sight to behold and collected several laughs afterward. The best part was I got even with the bunch when blowing sanitary tanks after they came back to ship a little more than drunk. The good part was they had to clean all the little pieces of paper off everything when they finally got the ball valve shut. I put the signs on and they ignored them. Only ever saw one guy with claustrophia;he was a reservist from Detoit who got his dolphins on a tied up WW2 submarine. He never went to sea on it. The Captain made him try to requalify the right way--cured his claustrophia problem. He only made one cruise --guess he didn't like subs afterall. He left without his dolphins though.
The Master Chief videos are awesome. What a memory he has! And a great storyteller - just like the Shipleys. The Smithsonian needs to get these stories down on record as a valuable part of American History. (I'm serious). Thank you Hershel! Keep 'em coming!
I have two step daughters which I call bonus daughters. Anyway, they are in high school. I asked them if they knew anything about the Vietnam war. Sadly, they didn't other than it took place. I appreciate you sharing your experience and your heart. I served post Vietnam. My Dad served in Navy in Korean War. My family has a rich heritage of Navy. Now have a cousin who is a Commander in D.C. Scott Gilpin, and my nephew is nuclear electronics. My sister married a poser who tried the Navy Seal shit on me. He's still got her fooled I think. Don verified his sorry ass. Thank you for your service in theaters and your continued service to others. Godspeed sir.
I was so frustrated by the Navy letting sailors stay in bad physical condition. I wrote a letter to the Capt and CNO in Washington to see if I could transfer to the Marine Corp. lol. Didn't happen of course. I was with amp hips so I made life long brothers with some Marines and Navy alike. Captain was not amused by my letter other than laughing. I'm sure the CNO had a good laugh. I was 18 country boy, didnt know any better. I could listen to guys like you all day. I served from 79-85 and stayed in shape. haha.
Is it too late for MC to run for President?
There'd be a lot less meetings, and a lot more action.
WHELP, Its official ....... The Phony Seals Cold Call Bust and the Ask Hershel Shit, Videos is a dead nuts even tie for my favorite things to watch on this website...... I never thought anything could equal Don busting fake SEALS on the telephone...... I Vote Hershel Davis for Trumps Vice President Nominee!
Thanks again Master Chief...keep the good work ....Tell the Senior chief that we want longer videos of your segment! ,,,,, Mom would love to spend more time with you.... heh heh.
