This is mine. The USS Missouri (BB-63). I took this as she pulled alongside the USS Wichita (AOR-1) for an UNREP. The sense of history, and POWER was indescribable. I really felt the ship's presence in a manner I didn't with many others that came alongside.

How about you? What's your 'thing' like that?

I was a crew chief on A-10A 77-0270 in England in the 70's. I miss those days.

Got a couple, not necessarily in this order (sorry, Brothers and Sisters, I AM a Sailor!)

Regardless, Roy Benavidez: held his guts in while destroying NVA soldiers in hand-to-hand combat in Viet Nam. Awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions (look him up, you’ll know why he was one of my picks)

Doris ‘Dorie’ Miller: Shipmates, we should all know who he is. A messman (cook, basically) on the West Virginia during the Pearl Harbor attacks, he manned and operated a crew-served weapon on which he had never been trained, and used it to down several attacking Japanese planes. Despite not “knowing” how to work the gun, he did it, and did it exceptionally well.

Roy Benavidez embodied the Soldier, and Doris Miller embodied the Iron Sailor. If those two aren’t BAMFs, I don’t know what else is.

I'll take your word for it. He's quite a guy to do what he did.

Couldn't agree more - I was going to select MSG Benavidez as he is the toughest of them all.
