My name is Kidd.(yes its my real name),
I recently ended my 5 years of active service in the U.S. NAVY.
Befor getting out all i could think about was getting home. Now that I am here things arent the same. I feel like every one and every thing here has changed so much. I am haveing a very hard time adjusting back to my "small town" life. I was wondering if there were any "VETS" out there if any one of you, could help me with this.
I understand this is not written with the best use of English grammer, punctuation, and spelling. hopefully you will look past this and offer any advice and help.
Thank you all so much,
Funny how the little things stick with you. My two: shined shoes and gig line. And my haircut is still 35-10 (although the goatee isn't).
i havent heard gig line in years, now that we switched over to wearing cammies, but when i came in we were rocking the utliaties.
When I enlisted we still had OD green cotton fatigues.
o wow that is really takeing it back old school lol
Well, at least we had subdued stripes and nametags when I started. So it could be "older school".
Lol thats very True, you could have had to put them on there with a paint pen.
That's the old school Navy with the dungarees. I started back when they had the polyester work uniform but changed back to the cotton dungarees when they discovered the poly would melt to your skin in a high heat (think fire) environment. Cotton would burn but wouldn't stick. Then I went Brown-Water Navy where we wore the old pickle-suits (OD green), then we switched to the green camo BDUs (first generation).
