Oh yeah, my HS coach held the world record for the fifty mile run for a brief time. Needless to say complaining or whining was not tolerated.

i played baseball. had a blast, started to play in college but then joined the navy. i'm one of those athletes that is pretty decent at everything i try but i'm not great at anything. my biggest flaw is that i tend to be streaky. so far golf isn't any different...

During my time in I went to Hawaii several times although my experience was a little different. Try standing watch topside in the middle of the night with the aft end of a rusty battle ship sticking out of the water 100yds in front of you, talk about creapy!
Bravo said:At my most recent high school reunion - I met an old classmate who retired from the Navy last year.
He told me he was the Executive Officer on a Los Angeles class sub.....and he had that unmistakable military officer bearing about him. Upright posture...measured conversational response...
He looked like he was evaluating everything I said - as if I was a subordinate. Not being rude...but like laser focused all the time.
I have never served in any branch - so my ignorance is embarrassing...
