DD(Dad’s Diary)62 A Fathers Day Edition

Just a Break from the regularly  scheduled  stuff ! I was more than Proud to be a dad for my 2 Kids , and no 1 event is better than any other , but my Mr. Mom title was the most memorable for me. When I was stationed at N.A.T.T.C.(Naval Air Technical Training Command) Millington  as an Instructor at The Basic Aviation-Electrical Maintenance , My Son Christopher came to live with me when he was 5 years Old. And being subject to Lots of Moving every 4 years , I Bought a single wide Trailer . And as an added benefit , when we moved to a new base we always had a familiar home! So getting used to a new town when we moved , we had 1 less thing to adjust to!

Mobile Home part 2 next time…

DD(Dad’s Diary) 61 Bahrain Part 3 , The Saga….

My second 9 month Deployment there , was a different place , as the Navy Built a new barracks for us , it was near the military ASU(Auxiliary Support Unit) , a compound for all the military in the area ,  It was full of mobile home like buildings for the Headquarters , and though I could Bike there in years past ,  I could get there quicker , not an all day affair like it once was. We were fed @ our living Quarters , so we rarely had to eat out , Maybe we are a bit spoiled? But food safety in foreign lands is always a gamble! This time I bought a bike , just like the locals , so I’m sure the american on 1 of their bicycles turned a few heads!? The bike was made in Pakistan , And was rather heavy , as it was made of steel , and it was quite a chore to lug it to and from my room. Luckily the elevators rarely broke down (Like years past!) so that helped. When i first deployed there , we were closer to the airport , and further away from ASU.

This post will definitely have a 61.2 , so more to come
