How many people can claim that you flew to San Diego and then transferred onto a Navy helicopter and landed on a ship 80 miles west of the California coastline.

You may think there’s absolutely nothing west of San Diego except a whole lot of water. Lodi businessmen Russ Fields and Ryan Sherman flew 80 miles west of civilization, landed on a Naval destroyer and spent a day learning was life was like in the Navy.

    Have either one been in the military? And, Mr. Walters. another thing those sailors detest is healthy young men who haven't served their country.

    Mr. Samone: you are correct to mention a four year commitment. My grandson just got out of the Navy after doing 4 years, 80 miles is one thing, however a 7 month deployment is another. His ship, the USS Normandy out of Norfolk Va. spent its time in the Middle East, spent some time in ports that were not very friendly to American Sailors. The Atlantic crossing was a rough one since the Normandy is long and somewhat narrower than a Destroyer. The one thing all Sailors detest is, the heat, no A/C on the Normandy. One of the first things he and his wife did upon getting out of the Navy was go on a cruse, providing it had A/C and plenty of cold beer. Being a retired Marine, whats A/C, beer I am very fimilar with.
