4th of July

Here we go sports fans. FINALLY..................the cold and snow are gone. It's nice and toasty outside. The sun bakes our backs, arms and legs when we do the "manly" ritual of mowing the grass. We come inside for a cold one and to ease the pain of our sunburnt bodies and casually glance at the calendar next to the fridge. OMG!!!!! It's already the 4th of July. Where the heck did the time go? Jeez, wasn't Easter last week?

The time for the manliest of manly… Continue

Fathers Day

I'm no different than many guys and/or gals, that grew up without a father. Mine, in particular, thought breaking the law was more important than taking care of his family. Basically, prison was where I knew him to be the most. Definitely not around me.Thus, I was raised by my grandmother. She understood that a "father figure" was needed and did her best to expose me to every imaginable avenue available..........from church organizations to boy scouts. She would often insist on me going on… Continue

Finding Amos B. Tiger

Greetings Everyone!

My cousin, Cleto Amos Tiger Jr. (an active Philippine Navy) and I registered his long-lost father Mr. Amos B. Tiger Sr., with high hopes that some one from this site might extend any help or assistance in finding him, eventhough we have limited knowledge and known informations about him.

Mr. Amos B. Tiger Sr. was a US Navy who once stationed here in the Cavite Naval Base, Philippines , around year 1958, and met my cousin's mother Ms. Nenita Malimban.… Continue

Flag Day

Having spent over 10 years in this man's Navy, I was one of many fortunate Americans to have visited many different countries. I ate their foods, experienced their cultures, made an honest attempt to learn a little bit of their language, and visited their historical sites. Through all of this, I always tried to show my respect to that particular place and the people.

Why? Because I believed that I was an unofficial ambassador for my country. I never wanted anyone from that country to… Continue

Just back from ACVA reunion 2009

Hey Everyone,

I just returned from my first Assault Craft Veterans Association (ACVA) reunion. It was held May 21-23. I wrote a blog in March saying, "the time is now for reunions." I know now how true this is. If any of you have a chance to go to a reunion for your ship, crew, or group, do it. You won't be sorry! I was able to spend some time with Sailors that had served during WW-II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and other military operations. Our group was hosted by Assault Craft… Continue
