We were doing our last underway replenishment (UnRep) prior to starting the long trip back to the states. As we broke away from the tanker that refueled us, East Bound and Down started up from the ships loudspeaker system at max volume. Since that day, that song has always represented to me the beggining of the end to a long journey.

    I salute your ship, and your service...

    Isn't it funny how a song that means one thing in one place can mean so many different things in so many different places? That is the power of music.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    RIP, Jerry.
    I think it was Fred. Or Goldwater. I can't remember.

    Remember "The Survivors" with Jerry Reed as a hitman?

    My favorite line: "So darlin' I wasn't out committing adultery. I was out committing murder".
