My First Deployment In The Western-Pacific Was An Adventure For Sure. Bangladesh Was Not Only “A Tad Behind The USA” , But Also Made Our Life On Our Ship , That We Once Thought Was A Bit Inconvenient , ¬†Much Nicer After Bangladesh! We Got A Small-Look At Their Land , But Volunteering To Re-Hab A Local-Orphanage , Was Even More Of A Wake Up Call , And Being The Know It All American Of 19 , Showed Me More! And I Thought I Knew It All!? Also On That Cruise In The Pacific , We Went To Pearl Harbor. Reading About The Attack In School Was 1 Thing , Being There Was Even More Surreal For Me. At The Time , Hong-Kong Was Ruled By England ¬†, So The Port Of Call There Was A Lesson In Capitalism , But Now The Chinese Are In Charge, So The Neon-Lights/Casinos/Shopping Etc. May Soon Be A Thing Of The Past.

Plenty More To Come…
