    Part VII

    After completiion of RefTra, we embarked on combat exercises. As a warship, we had to coordinate with others.


    We operated with the Jersey, Long Beach, Gray, Thach, and Wabash. We operated with other ships in various formations.


    They called this collection of warships:Battle Group Romeo.



    We hunted submarines, our primary mission. And I quickly got my quals as an LSE completed.

    But, as it is said, the trouble soon began.

    I'd been aboard ship since Nov.'83. It was now Mar of '86. And I was burning out. I had not taken time off, and it was showing. So, I requested leave, a few weeks in advance. Granted.

    I bought my ticket early so I could get it for a song. I'd be flying home to Texas for 30 days of no pressure. I needed it.

    One day out, I was informed my leave was being cancelled. And I boiled over. Well, really, I exploded. Total fury. My tickets were non-reundable, and I was supposed to fly out at 0800. Since the word came down from Officer's Country, the lower chain of command was out.

    I was told by the lieutenant that the ship was going on an unscheduled excercise, and I was going. I replied " No,Sir, you are quite incorrect, I AM going. You just don't know it yet. He called Chief Caro to head me off.

    Caro intercepted me, and he tried to get me to back down. I didn't know him enough to trust him, and by now, I didn't care. He stood and glared at me, and I at him. (Texas plays here, from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly)

    He let me go by, down to the Command Master Chief.
    I sat down and talked emphatically with him. He evaluated the situation, and told me to stay put.

    About 30 minutes later, he walks the lieutenant in. He drops a piece of paper in front of me, stares daggers, then walks out.

    The CMC tells me to have a great leave.

    I got my gear, signed out, and got a motel near the airport, before someone could change their mind.

    Crazy, not dumb.

    Hey everyone, hi! What a day I've had! Had to help Tanya take care of all the stuff you do when you lose a purse, cancel credit cards, get a new driver's license, get her cash from my savings. It's just heII thinking it is probably someone we've had over for bbq's.
    Lol, on the plus side, I saw a new Camero cruising down the highway! What a sweet looking car! That's what I'm saving up for next . I think a dark dark blue or a candy red with a pair of white rally stripes down the hood, top and trunk.

    Part VIII.

    My leave went well. I slept in, rode horses, and generally told the world to kiss off for a month.

    I returned to the ship with a week to go before we would deploy. I was met by one of my shipmates and told to get my gear ready, I was gonna be transferred to another ship until the deployment was over.

    Oops.

    I prepared things as instructed, and went to work, deciding that discretion was the better part of valor.

    I was kept on edge that week. I was/wasn't going. I figured I was gonna take my hit for my impertinence. I was told, finally, to bring my stuff up on deck to transfer, so, I toted everything topside, where I was asked by the watch officer, where was I going?

    He informed me there were no such orders. A light popped on in my head. I now had a clue what was going on. I was being harassed for my little show the previous month, but I didn't let on that I knew.

    The following morning, we got underway for deployment. It was a cool, gray day, the cries of the gulls competed with men making preparations for sea. The 1MC blared, lines and brow taken in, the tugs gave off a mighty blast of exhaust a shrill whistle blew, we were underway!

    As the sound of the ship's whistle died, we formed up on the forecastle, and stood to for Quarters.

    It was at this time, I was instructed that once Sea and Anchor was secured, I was to report to the Mess Deck for duty. I replied, Wait, I've already HAD mess duty.

    You have two months more, came the growled reply.

    I stared at the Chief for a moment, and replied, "Aye, Chief." No argument, this time.
