Fullbore Friday

Though I was only a wee kid at the dawn of the "Hairy Navy" days that started in the early 70s, I've always had a soft spot for those guys. It was a "Navy Day" in grade school to Mayport and a few ship visits around this time that gave me the Navy bug.

No parades. No thanks for your service. Poor pay. Social unrest at home the likes no one under the age of 50 even has a clue about.

That being said - she did OK.

At the dawn of the decade that was tough for everyone in the service; a DD in 1970. 

Also note; no running rust.
