    So apparently I'm going to Fleet Week Chicago.

    Anyone know anything about it?


    Should this be a good or bad thing?:dunno:

    Not sure how Chicago will be since Great Lakes is right up the road and when I was there....The Navy guys didn't garner a lot of respect from the Chicagoans...mostly due to the drunken debauchery that Sailors get into and it was also pre-9/11...so times might have changed by then. Fleet Week in NYC and SF and the Rose Festival in Portland, Oregon is where it's at though.

    Funny story and a question:

    How bad it is to go up to mast(?) with the captain of an aircraft carrier? :hsugh:

    There is this dentist on this big dental forum that was talking about when he was in the navy he had to show up in dress whites, get an ass ripping from the captain commanding hte carrier because when they were in port for fleet week he just decided not to show up to an all ship muster or something to that extent. :ugh: :rofl:
