Oh, Hello and welcome!


#13

Hi and welcome! Former Navy myself (enlisted, from the '80s).

Hello and welcome to RO. Former Army here–in the Vietnam era. I have a grandson who is SUPPOSEDLY going through boot at GLNTC in Evanston, IL. Haven’t heard from him in a couple of months and last time we talked, he SAID he was leaving for Evanston on 6/6.


#15

When I was a young lady back in the early 70’s my girlfriends and I would go to downtown Chicago on Saturdays to meet up with Navy guys getting leave on the weekend. I believe they came from Great Lakes Naval Academy, but I don’t remember if it was in Evanston. Wasn’t it somewhere else? BTW, they were ALWAYS gentlemen and we had a lot of fun with them.


#16

Welcome to RO! I quoted myself since you and I may disagree on some issues.


#17

Yeah, I agree with you on Ms. Boudin and Chesimard. Certainly contemporaries of the Hildabeest. Geesh! Both murdered police. Boudin received a life sentence but was paroled in 2003. She’s now an adjunct prof at Columbia. DUH!! Columbia is probably the most commie influenced den of thieves in the nation. Ms. Chesimard…oops!..*Assata Olugbala Shakur * escaped from prison after murdering two state troopers amongst other heinous crimes. She escaped to and is now living in commie heaven Cuba. Now we know why BO was so hell-bent on “normalizing” relations with Cuba.

Thank you… :slight_smile:


#19

I would say we’re opposites! Lol

Basic is at the Naval Academy there at Great Lakes. I’ve never been there, I graduated from Annapolis in 2011.

Glad the sailors you met were gentlemen!
