Comments:

Hi everyone, after highschool I worked at the Press Box and attended one year of college and as many of you know that did not go too well! I joined the Navy in Nov 90 as an E2 and in March 2007 I was commissioned as a Naval Supply Corp Officer. Eva and I married June 91 and moved to Norfolk, VA, That was our first duty station. From there we moved to Charleston, SC; Camp LeJeune, NC; Gulfport, MS; Oklahoma City, OK; Athens, GA; and now we are back in Norfolk, VA. I have now been in a little over 17 years and plan to retire from the Navy in another 10 years. We have 3 wonderful, beautiful kids. I have been all over the world and sailed the 7 seas and would not trade it for anything. Marrying Eva was the best thing I ever did and joining the Navy was the second best thing. We will deploy in Sep and you are more then welcome to email me at powelljr@cvn71.navy.mil. Look forward to hearing for yall. See ya in Natchitoches next year.

School Story:

There are many stories, but I am not sure any of them should be written down, only told to others over a cold frosty beverage.
