San Jacinto Day
Oh, I also forgot. The second ship I was stationed on after Talbot was decommissioned was the USS San Jacinto (CG-56), She was an Aegis cruiser. I was not a member of her commissioning crew but everyone who was, were my crewmates. That was a very different ship than Talbot. I even got in trouble once with the XO for commenting on that when I shouldn't have. I hated a lot of my time aboard her, but now though I still dislike those times, I look back on my time aboard her with some fondness. I was a lot more immature than I am now.
