Of all the weeks... get underway with USS Decatur, fate would have it be the week the ship turns five years old. I got my old rack back in the CPO berthing - and a near thing that was, too - and with the man overboard drill right after reveille it made me feel like the last year never happened. Wow. I talked to one of the other guys on the team, and he said it feels that way to him every time he rides his old ship, and he didn't even commission it.

That ship was such a large part of my life for so long....

I miss it. I've about decided that I want to do another precom when I go back to sea duty.
