Well I guess I will follow on with this.
My Name is.... (find name tag) oh.. Ron Seegert. I don't have the catchy name like Hop, but I mostly answer to "Hey Chief!" now a days. I grew up in Milwaukee, WI, but now I call my home down here in Sunny Pensacola, FL. I'm "cough, cough" 35 as of last year, and really don't care anymore, since I have someone to remind me that I act like a 3 year old. See get married and you grow younger.
I've spent 17 years in the Navy and am on my last duty station (maybe). I have lived in Yokosuka, Japan/ Longbeach, CA/ Everett, WA/ Great Lakes, IL/ Pearl Harbor, HI/ and now Pensacola, FL. I Have seen more countries than I can count and a few that no longer exist. Specialty in Steam, Diesel, Gas Turbine Propulsion, AC&R, Hydraulics, Liquid O2 generation, Pneumatic systems, etc.... Now I work Equal Opportunity, what a change in job descriptions. Currently waiting on results from the E8 Board. Good luck to you HOP and Military Jeeper on your exams.
Let's see what rigs have I owned.. (2) Toyota's, (1) Dodge Dakota, (1) Grand Cherokee (wifes), (2) CJ's including an '86 Laredo, (1) YJ, (2) TJ's and now my Latest Patriot Blue Rubicon. So 10 4x4's total.
