    Congrats. It's not all that bad, just find yourself something to do. I retired in April 2014 after 28 years on LE. Got out at a good time. Now I just occupy my time working part-time a few days a week, riding my Harley in the summer and hunting in the fall/winter months. Have fun and enjoy!
    The devil made me do it the first time. The second time I done it on my own!

    My dad was in the USN for a few years in the mid 70s aboard a destroyer. Mostly in the South Pacific and around South Africa.

    To haunt your memories:

    talk about a haunt....I served 8 years on the enterprise on the west coast in the 70's-80's.
    in 2014 it came around the horn for its last cruise and moored in Newport news, (where it was made) to be dismantled.
    there it is.....now that is a haunt.
