Actually, here is something interesting. In my quest to get answers to some of the more inane questions that the Chief's mess is asking of us, I ran across an email address for a chief that was on the USS Ticonderoga when I was serving as a mess crank (cook) in the Chief's mess. I sent him a note and gave him a little bit of grief for making me prepare him omlettes with no yolks and he remembered me. He thought I was still in Norfolk and invited me to his retirement ceremony. He is a senior chief now, great guy. Going to be cool to have some guidance from him to include in my collection.
