I served on the USS Constellation, USS FLINT, CINCPACFLT, Naval Data Center Pearl Harbor, and USS Leftwich. Many great memories!

Thank him from us for serving!

That is the path most (all) of us took.
Wise council Tom and the path we are currently on. A few more years in our current boat will have us well prepared for the next phase.

Surely his experience, albeit in different vessels, counts for something with prospective insurers. Be sure to include it.

Hi Salty Sailors Wife! Welcome aboard.
Since you're in the market for insurance and Peter, Pau Hanna, has given you some useful advice, it might be nice to give him a chance to quote. Because of the forum rules he can't make the offer, but you can ask him. He does seem to know what he's talking about.
