    We won't go into detail of the trials prior to being subpoenaed by Davy Jones to appear in Neptune's court.(this is a family-friendly fourm after all) It's a rare honor for sailors of every creed to be found worthy of the Shellback name........ and to FINALLY shead the 'pollywog' status from your service jacket.
    I'm also a Blue Nose (Golden Dragon prior to going back to become a Golden Shellback). I can tell there's a lot of pollywogs around here...

    Oh yeah there is! Blue Nose was my first deployment, Golden Dragon my second, and the Golden Shellback and the Order of the Ditch on my third deployment. I was wondering if the 'abuse' would ever end. Now after 21 years of Naval service, I (we) stood taller than everyone....... there are too few of us even in active duty Navy, fewer still in the submarine service I just retired from.

    I guess we're the one's left to lead the 'wogs' in the traditions of our brothers before us..............

    In a previous life I was a radio DJ...It was my air name because my real name was "too ethnic" back in the day...

    Way back in highschool, my buddy that I pumped iron with called me 'Baby Hulk' cuz I'm short but was bulking up at the time. Sorry, not into comics, but I like the moniker.

    Arkie...live in Arkansas, and was 45 when I started using the name. I was a beta tester for AOL way back when, and was Arkie. Eventually, there were a lot of Arkansans using the name, so added the 45 about 11 years ago. Now I can apply the 45 to this:

    Came on my birth certificate and never felt the need for a crafty screen name to hide behind.

    I need to hide behind mine because in my years of moderating, editing, banning, and deleting some of the "highly over emotional" folks on this forum I'd have had all of my vehicle and house windows broken by now.

    A play on the German (Gerries) Blitzkrieg. Admired their tactics but not so much their ideals.
