Wink Hello from VA

Hey everyone. I just found this site while searching for some help with my leaf blower, and so far I'm impressed with all the info on here.

My name's Patrick. I'm a husband, father of three, and sailor in the US Navy (stationed in Norfolk, VA).

As most of you know, military pay leaves something to be desired, so I'll probably be on here quite a bit, pestering all of you for help with random things.

Welcome to the Forums.

Ask away Patrick...and spend some time searching and reading old threads. I don't think there's been a question ever asked that someone hasn't seen before.

You'll have to forgive us the fact that there are a few Marines here...we squids try to keep them in line...but sometimes, what can you do?

lol....

Hope you avoided any of the storms Gloucester and such had to deal with.

Geez, there goes the neighborhood. Didn't really think you were going to sneak a jab by me, did you Vic?

Thanks for the welcome. I don't mind the Navy Special Ed folks hanging out - they're always good for a few laughs.

As for the storms, we caught some rain, but that was pretty much the extent of it.

Well, we are a department of the Navy......the MEN'S Department.

Nice work by the SEALs this week, by the way.

Yeah, we were tired of the gyrenes screwing things up, so we sent in our guys to fix it.



I only wish I'd been on the ship they dumped bin Laden's body from. I bet they had to wash a LOT of urine off that deck.
