Tim Printy's Naval Career

I usually get a lot of questions about my naval career and I felt it would be a good idea to share my experiences over the years in the Navy.  I broke it down into a few sections, which you can access in the links below.  Just click on the picture or the link and it will take you there. Hopefully, you will find the stories both entertaining and informative. I tried to keep them brief but now that I look back on it and I have a lot to tell.  You can contact me with further questions and information by email at tprinty_comcast.net (substitute the _ with the "at" symbol) . Old shipmates are more than welcome to contact me. I may even have a photograph or two of you laying about somewhere!  If you are a shipmate and have photographs with me in them, I would be interested in getting a copy.
