Nice to meet
you...My name is Bob Brandt and I first joined the Navy
many years ago, just out of high school in fact.. For
a short time, I decided I would give the Army a try
which was during the late 60's. Civilian life seemed
more appealing so I served with the reserves and the
National Guards a few years during that time....and
later re-entered the Navy and decided to I'd retire
there. I have spent most of my years on one ship or
another and visited many countries around the world.
The Persian Gulf, the Red Sea during Desert Storm. Desert
Shield was our playground. I am currently assigned to
USS John L. Hall FFG-32 (fast frigate guided) home port
Naval Station Pascagoula, Ms. This is where I hope to
remain, retiring in just over 2 years with 30 years
of military service. My personal thoughts are while
I wouldn't take anything for the memories, experiences,
good and bad, if I had to do it again....depends on
when you ask me. Welcome Home Vietnam Vets, I salute
