I can not thank him enough for the laughs I have had over there. But more importantly, the insights his blog has provided.
In the post, CDR S lists people who have influenced/helped him. Every blogger has such a list and he is high up on mine.
I enjoy what blogging about the Navy has brought me......later this week for example, I will be front and center at the Change of Command for Old Ironsides. I don't have to crash, I was invited....in writing. These wonderful things I have, are due in large part to other Navy bloggers like Phib.
He was also very helpful and supportive in the run up to my little deployment on Kearsarge.
Lastly, he has always been very gracious about my email blasts that usually start with "I want...."; "I Need......"; or "Help me......"
Congratulations on five years.
