"Yeah, I remember "the needle," -- actually lots of needles.  When I was at Navy Recruit Training Command-Orlando back in '75, our whole company would "one step" single file between a gauntlet of Navy corpsmen armed with…"

Richard Samuel Najjar replied to joseph E lambert's discussion you had trouble varigying information in the group USS Hunley AS-31
"Golly, Joseph.  I never knew the Hunley to be such a rough stretch of real estate.  I'm surprised I made it alive from Hunley's quarter deck to my boat tied along side in one piece -- to hear you describe events there.  Life…"

Richard Samuel Najjar replied to Jerald Terwilliger's discussion 2012 Senate NDAA has a provision for Cold War Service Medal in the group Cold War Navy Veterans
"George, I can't argue that we have to get our fiscal house in order.  I believe that Ronald Reagan showed the way, and in spite of a Democrat congress during six out of his eight years, managed to spend what was necessary to end the Cold…"

"    Agreed George, none of us here gave much consideration for personal recognition, then or now.  Some of us then in the control rooms of submarines, the flight lines and missile control centers of SAC bases, the Marine…"

Richard Samuel Najjar left a comment for Carolyn Willoughby (Newlan Brady
"Welcome aboard Carolyn.  That is an interesting and rather difficult rate.  Don't know a whole lot about the surface Navy, but I know enough that hull techs had it tough and dangerous at times.  Check out my page, there…"

How Not To Land A Chinook

"After watching the video a few times, it looked like the helo had landed with the left rear wheel on the safety net on the edge of the flight deck.  When he tried to reposition, he was pulling some of the safety net and metal frame up with him…"

"Well, just saying what ought to happen won't make it so.  All Cold War veterans, and any other support they can muster from other veterans groups need to launch a campaign aimed at every congressional delegation in Washington.  I was…"

Richard Samuel Najjar commented on Douglas Karr's group USS Hunley AS-31
"That is indeed interesting.  Who knows how many of us, regardless of whether we were on submarines or surface ships manuvering along the Cooper River and Charleston Harbor, knew just how close we were to the CSS Hunley or the USS…"

Iraqi Freedom

"Great Video.  The Navy-Marine Corps Team is big and it's tight.  I never saw it in the submarine service, probably because of our isolated nature, and in my case, because I was medically boarded in my third year before I could expand…"

"A Tiger Cruise sounds great.  USS Enterprise was always a sort of cornerstone of the U.S. Fleet.  When I was in submarines back in the mid-70s, a fellow torpedoman -- who had started his Navy career in mine warfare -- told me that he…"
