McGrew, MichaelMM2Mar 11, 1993 – Apr 17, 1997obviously THE BESTI arrived on the old dog as a f'n NUB. The first person I met,and probably the most influential,was MMC Mark Katona.

Thompson, JimRM1/SSJun 1993 – Jun 1994RadioWas Co-LPO, until CPT Puryear arrived (crazy f***), Worst place I ever served. Crew was great, command was the problem. Most professional crew you could want. Too bad the CO wasnt worth a damn. Do they still have the psycho wing named for spadefish.

Puryear, BuddyCaptApr 15, 1994 – Apr 15, 1997Command
Despard, TerryRM1/ET/SS/DVMay 1994 – Jul 1998RadioThe RM's, ET's and Divers as well as the entire crew were the best in my 20 years. Most of my division are already listed here. I will be looking to see if any are still in as my son is now in the Navy.
