Master Chief returns from Finland and he had a GREAT time.
Hershel Returns from Finland and he had a GREAT time. Send your care packages for Hershel in care of Don Shipley and I’ll see he gets them. Diane will mother him up. He’s tough... Many thanks for rating
I'm sorry to hear that you hurt yourself here in Finland, I'm glad you got good help!
Greeting from Finland
Butch n Flip
I was in Helsinki in 1975, liberty from the USS Leahy, on our way back from Leningrad. I know it sounds like another BS story, hell sometimes I wonder. The Finnish were the second most congenial and just plain wonderful folks I met anywhere. Russians in Leningrad get top billing. In Helsinki we had open liberty and did some tours.( A Boatswains mate taught me the ropes of liberty. Told me ship tours were enlightening, though he didnt use those words..) We were guests in some sort of military base or R&R facility, probly not far from base. I remember cold beer, a blazing sauna and the biggest indoor pool id seen since boot. Long story short, I had much the same experience as you did Master Chief, sans the fall. ( I did think it would take a fall from the space station to injure a SEAL)...Wonderful folks.and Leningrad, well thats a story with way too many words for the moment. Im glad you are healing and smiling oh and just btw.....Dumb question...Master Chief.. What rate were you ? Best wishes and CAVU days to ya
The Finnish vodka is called 'Koskenkorva'. Finland is bordering Sweden. The Swedish equivalent is called 'Absolut'. End of message.
That with taking of the shoes is the usual thing in Scandinavia, probably because the often bad weather that would make the floors dirty all the time.
Yes attack divers/battle divers is what is, but its more like your UDT and taking pictures than a SEAL team.
Has anybody checked the wall in Finland? It may collapse after the Master Chief's Coconut made impact, probably cracked the foundation...
Get well soon Master Chief!
