Hello, I am a veteran of Operation Desert Shield, Desert Storm, and Liberation of Kuwait. I spent most of my time during Deser Storm over in Saudi Arabia. I am ex-Navy, and have been since '93. My ship was the USS Puget Sound (AD-38). She has been decomishioned since '96. I guess the Navy got what they wanted of her then let her go. She served my purpose while I was assigned to her and I hope I served her well. My prayers are with them at the moment, whomever is involved with any overseas activities, since I know what similar situations many of the servicemen/women are dealing with. At the moment, I have a brother-in-law still in the Navy on a carrier, the USS Enterprise. He is salty, so it shouldn't be much longer before he gets out.
