Here is a little secret I kept to myself for many years. During PRECOMM I was sent to Tarawa in Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi before anyone else on the ship. At the shipyard, I went into the records room where they had the records where the Operations Department would sleep. I took out the paper when no one was looking, stuffed it in my pants, and took it to the ship. I found where they assigned the OSs to sleep. IT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE MAIN TWO DOORS AND ALL THE LOCKERS! I said to myself this is going to be bad. So, I erased the names of another Operations Department division sleeping in the back and switched EVERY OS to the back where it would be very quite and DARK! I then slipped back into the room that housed the records and replaced the sleeping assignment record for the Operations Department. Did you know I did that? I am sure I kept that a secret, even to the OSs when I left the USS Tarawa on February 23, 1979.

We had an IC man in the engineering berthing compartment who was almost impossible to wake up. One morning we triced him up in his bottom rack and left him there . . . the Chief got him up that morning! I won't mention any names -- we'll just leave this here to await his reply!

A new movie is coming out, starring Rick Holly playing himself, and the name of the Movie is The Dark side of Rick Holly . There will be a sequal because I feel Rick has many stories to let out to rid himself of guilt, The supense is killing me on Ricks next story

Maybe because of all his "antics" while in the Navy, he had to become a school teacher to help balance the scale.
