My brother went into the AF in 1961 unit 1984 he was an E8 then the next years until retirement at Wright Patterson AFB. I sometimes wonder if I would have stayed in the service if I had gone into the AF. ohwell

Thanks for your service, Alwayswrenchin! A Marine Corps brother of mine's (we were in 3rd MarDiv together) dad was the CMC aboard Port Royal at one time. Too bad about her grounding -- you weren't aboard at the time, were you?

Both of my parents retired from BIW and were both involved with the DDG-51 builds so they both had a part in building Hopper. I actually had the honor of meeting RDML Hopper when I was a midshipman. She gave me a "Nanosecond" -- a piece of wire the same length that an electron travels in a nanosecond (about 2 feet). I wish I still had it.... she was a fascinating lady and scary smart.

The grounding was after my time on the PR. RDML Hopper was definitely a scary smart lady from what little I have read on her.

She had a clock in her office that was backwards. Read time in the opposite direction. Part of her effort to inspire subordinates to "think out of the box. She *was* scary smart. She was one of several people I was blessed to meet and get inspired by while at the Severn School for Wayward Youth. smile I was glad they named a Bath-built DDG for her. "Bath built is best built." smile

You served on a good ship. I know from first hand family experience that a lot of pride went into her -- from the keel up..

USAF 1965-69. After Basic at Lackland in Texas and tech training at Chanute in Illinois I split my time between Clinton-Sherman AFB in western Oklahoma, Kadena Air Base in Okinawa and a few short TDYs (actually typhoon evacs from Kadena) to Guam, the Phillipines and Tiawan. Twisted wrenches on B-52 and KC135 autopilot and navigation systems.
