Quoting Max Q (Thread starter): It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Anyone else experience this ?
Yes, but I was on the "other" side. I was part of the crew when we had one. Was fun, even though I had to answer the same questions 100's of times. "Whats that big black thing that goes roundie roundie on top of the ship?" A damn air search radar, didn't you listen when the kid next to you asked that?
It was a great time, the kids and other family members enjoyed it and learned alot about what daddy does. (All male crews on combat ships back then, they wouldnt even allow girls to go on the cruise)
