So it's been days spent running back and forth between a destroyer's training (where the only times they showed what I really needed to see, I really needed to be somewhere else, so one of the first class petty officers got stuck doing it) and checking out of the command. I hit everyone who had my name in a database--the supply guys, where I was more than happy to get rid of that albatross better known as a government travel credit card; the whizz-quiz folks, so they aren't hunting me down to pee in a bottle and letting everyone know that I DIDN'T check out with them; and a few others. Monday morning is my last day there. Er ... did I mention that I did get an award when I left? A seventh Navy Achievement medal. Ah, well, if it had been anything higher I would have been sure I got away with something--and certain that I would have been shelling out more for my ribbons every time they needed replacing.
