    I don't understand it. I would assume that would be a question he would answer quite readily.

    Based on the statement, at the youngest, he would now be around 85-86 years old. He is either taking a nap or headed out for the early bird special.

    Oops . Missed the response.

    I was assigned to the Quezon and commissioned her into the Philippine Navy in 1967.

    Here is her story...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRP_Quezon_%28PS-70%29

    I spent 9 years in the navy from 1962 til '71 and was on several ships, both coasts and crossed both oceans.

    I can't read sonnabend; he's on my ignore list.

    You commissioned her? So you were her Captain?

    Your own words.

    I'm a 60 - something year old dude, and I tell ya...
    Make that a 70 something,

    How old were you when you joined the Navy? Were you an enlisted man? An officer? According to your own posts you could have been no more than 20 years old at most..so either you were promoted FAST or you didnt

    commission her into the Philippine Navy in 1967.

    The article is really interesting. It amazes me how long they can keep ships in service.

    He would have to be at least 18 to have been in the Navy in 1962 (as a recruit straight out of school) means he was born in 1944 or thereabouts. My guess is he is between 66 and 68 years old.

    Or older.

    Chickenshit.

    Technically, the Bock's Car ended it with the second atomic bomb drop, but I'm just being an a-hole for pointing that out. :D
