July 27th (88 days at sea)

I'd be remised if I didn't make a post about recent events.  After leaving Singapore, which was a blasty blast.  We had a Wog Day ceremony.  A Wog for the curious is a sailor that hasn't not crossed the equator.  After you cross the equator you become a "shellback" but first you have to go through trails, which back in the day were harsh and involved eating/crawling rotting food and being whipped with fire hose.  The trail I went through was much milder and consisted of getting yelled and exercising...lame.

In other news I got a freakin' medal yesterday.  Its called the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal is awarded by....

"Meritorious service or achievement in either combat or noncombat based on sustained performance or specific achievement of a superlative nature but which does not warrant a Commendation Medal or higher."

I got mine for being hand selected by the command to go on this mission.  Creating a manual for tactical supervisors and standing 80 hours of watch, which is not what I came out here to do.

Also, I'm coming home early as our mission is done in Micronesia we'll be flying out of Guam.  I'll be home on September 3rd or 4th.  A party is in order?

Maybe I'm a little late on this but Taking Back Sunday and Something Corporate kick major ass.

We pull into Darwin in 10 hours....drinks are in order.

I leave you with this quote

"The truth is you could silt my throat and with my one last gasping breath I'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt"-Taking Back Sunday

Have a good weekend

Re: tragic news

It was an ATV wreck like a month ago but you get a pass. Also his name is LeRoi and they've already been playing with his replacement.

In happier news, whats been up with you? Melissa have that baby yet? You should name it Lance Storm Loch or Owen Sabu Loch. Been watching the Olympics? Can't get enough of that beach volleyball sir.
