Hey Baby, I Love You Long Time
It's Halloween, and long before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Damn Gunners Mates. Sauers is on the left but for the life of me I can't remember who the chick is.
It's Up To You
This is a picture of the ship shot from the USS Intrepid Museum when we were in New York city for Fleet Week.  Man did we get drunk.
Yeah Baby!
An outbound Tomahawk fired from aft VLS During Desert Storm.  I got pics of almost all eight of our launches.  That SRBOC GQ station sure payed off.

Mmm, Beer Day
The XO's Last Steel Beach Picnic with the Wardogs. Tape on his ass says "See Ya". Little did we know how much we'd miss LCDR Bush.
