I was stationed aboard USS Badger from 1988 to 1991 when it was decommissioned. Surprised to see a photo of her while browsing random threads in the forum. It really brought a smile to my face, thank you.
Must have just missed you, by six months or so... I separated from the Badger and the USN in Aug '87.
It was heartbreaking to see what happened to the Bucky B, being sunk in Rimpac, but like the only positive thing is they never actually saw her go down. Looks like she took some serious hits as well...
Feel free to look me up in game... or if you want, I have a TS server that I'm an admin on, we can just shoot the breeze.
Good to hear from you.
