Arrived on Guam in 88, coming from the Iwo Jima, same class ship yet big difference between the two.

The Mighty 9, my first ship as an "AS". (my original rate was disestablished)  Worked for ASC Wellhaven. Frank Shutte, Robert Courtois, Troy Larock, Johnson Pajimna, Fackson (forgot your first name at the moment). Made the last deployment in "97 - 98" I miss the ship, was no longer swift and bold just stiff and old. She had the worst food out of all 5 ships I was on.  Still a fun tour.
