I'm currently in the Navy and love it. Oh, and I'm on Newgrounds while being here. But OP is right, once you get to a ship there's no more fun internet time. You can hardly make phone calls home. I'm only in my A school so I'm allowed to have my laptop in my barracks. Welcome back OP. What ship were you on? A carrier? DDG? FFG?
CG53 USS Mobile Bay. Are you still stuck in chicago?

Otherwise you get stuck on a ship for months at a time doing slightly cool things and going to awesome countries, but on the downside, Miss the newgrounds Redesign and not get to log on to the sight for a while, Good to be home and good to be back on newgrounds though none of you remember me probably I missed this websight.While I vaguely remember you, that's beside the point. You missed some of the shit that went hand in hand with the redesign - the inevitable shitstorm of bugs, reporting, whining about them and expectations from the kids that the admins can fix it instantaneously.
You've got a new website to come back to, when all of the "I preferred the old Newgrounds" crap has died down. Mind you, that seemed less than in 2007, so all good.
I'm kind of sad that you can't scroll over the angry face anymore and have the stupid thing pop up and yell at you lol... I would suggest bringing that back actually.

OP have you actually joined the Navy before?I'm still in my darling! Why do you ask? Have 3 years left in fact.
No but you can get sent on deployment all through out the middle east or if you're unlucky stationed in Bahrain for a while. If you get stationed in Guam expect to go to the middle east. The only way a Navy man can actually go to the middle east is if he signs up for an IA tour. Which stands for Individual Augumente...... You go through a little bit of combat Training and get to spend 9 months in afghanistan as a support unit with marines.
