Captain Crunch and I have known each other a good long while. He and I both served on the U.S.S. Puget Sound AD-38, although at different times. She was a destroyer tender, but was also the Sixth Fleet Flagship during the time I was stationed at Naples, Italy.
But we have a lot in common. Both vets, both shooters and both conservative.
He doesn't run his own blog, because like a lot of other good people he usually stays off the skyline.
I'm glad to have this post of his to put on the blog.
Here it is, complete and unabridged!
