LOL. I got my only scar in the Navy on the Skinny-T. I was on the signal bridge and we where on the edge of a typhon heading to Japan. Hit the deck and hit my chin and opened that baby wide open lol. I told the damn divo to let me secure the watch and let us stand watch on the bridge, a****** wouldnt listen. He wouldnt let me so I secured my boys and stood watch by myself all effing night, rockin and rollin sittin on the safe in the signal bridge with my legs pressin against the wall. You guys knew how we rocked just comin out of San Diego harbor. Man it was a bad one. Moved the ramp up forward, and u know how many tons that sucka wieghed. So first thing in the morning right about revelie, I was gonna go down to get my relief. Opened the door, foot hit the deck and that is all she wrote. Ship rocked, the deck was full of concentrated detergent that had poured everywhere during the night, and I was ass up and head down lol.
Next thing I know I'm sliding toward the side of the ship, seeing little birds fly around my head. Thank God for the stantion by the flagbag, cuz that is what kept me from goin overboard. Everything was fuzzy, but I was able to hold on and get my s*** together. I didnt even know my chin was cut wide open. I made it down to the underway head and looked in the mirror. Man of man i shouldnt of down that lol cuz when I lifted my chin up to take a look, it smiled at me. hahahahaha Doc Mac told me down in sickbay that if it was any bigger he would have to f*** me. hahahahaa made me laugh, the f*****. Great ship, great shipmates.
