No, I didn't hear about that. When is he supposed to graduate and what ship is he in? I could possibly go shake him up a little bit. I am from Fresno, and spent a little over 7 years stationed in Lemoore. Needless to say, I know where Stockton is.

He graduates Dec 8th, he's in Div 021, ship 05. He did this his second week there. Say's he's been layin low stayin off of his RO's radar. If you run into him his last name is Benitez. Shake him up and let him know his dad and mom have connections and that he better keep out a trouble.

So do you get to race anymore these days?

I'm not in nor have I ever been in the military, but I have had the great fortune to work directly with all four major branches of the US military. First in Germany installing fiber optics/siprnet for both the Army and the Air Force. Then in the US both installing cabling and rolling out brand new Dell's for the Marines and Navy on the NMCI project. I loved every minute that I was working with our brave men and women serving in the armed forces. I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for what you do for all of us here in the US and across the globe, you are the finest that humanity has to offer. Thank You.

Schurcr, you have a PM.

NMCI, that is the worst 4 letter word of all.

True that but that is EDS's fault not the techs. Trust me when I tell you. I was on both the cabling and rollout side at Lemoore the tech and team leaders fixed all of the problems out then EDS would take credit for, then screw up the methods. I was with that rollout for over 3 years and still loved every minute of it. There is nothing like setting up a computer like 6 feet from a FA-18. WOW!!

USMC here. 12 yrs and going. GySgt. Work on helicopters. 3 med floats and two trips to the sandbox.

Nothing compared to all those who have come before me and those who are performing the ultimate sacrifice so I have the opportunity to type this post.

Thank you!
