hmmmm, smoke a pipe and drink coffee, wear loose comfortable denim clothing in an environment where you've really got to be good to find me, or......

is there any wonder why i went submarines? i could have joined the green machine and ended up in some armpit southeast asian country. instead, i ended up in wonderful mare island, and idaho falls, and then back to mare island and points west

One photo shows the peak of physical fitness, high standards of personal grooming and abundant, youthful energy. The other photo looks like the Doc from Das Boot getting ready for short arm inspection. I could be wrong. In which shot were you photographed?

LOL..I like to hassle my ex-Army friends by letting them know my arduous duty was having to watch 'The Princess Bride' over and over again back in the day....;)
