CommentAwesome experience! These were my worst years, and my best years. Thank God for Captain Sherman; RIP. He gave me a second chance. Then MMCM(SW) PJ Fuller molded me into a sailor. [Then] MM1 Bruce White, my engineroom supervisor, made me tow the line and helped me advance. Greatest years of my 16 year career.
