    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    This made my deployment!

    So there I was all dressed up to do a ceremony over here in the UAE to promote/welcome the next generation of sailors to the rank of Chief when what do mine eyes see?

    A large land mass walking down the hall that, 'lo and behold was Tim Sylvia and with him was none other than Rich Franklin!

    They were over here doing a PR tour of the CENTCOM area and had a autograph photo session later that I unfotunatley missed out on, but they were kind enough to stop for a quick picture with me and a buddy. I'm the one on the far left.

    Everything i'd heard about Rich F. being a decent guy was true, same with Tim S. After the picture they shook hands and said thank you.

    It was the highlight of a thus far shitty deployment.

    That's awesome. Rich wrote about the trip on his site and I was really glad to see these guys stepping up to boost troop morale. Glad you had a chance to get a pic.

    Awesome, glad you got the chance to meet them. Upswings on tour in the middle east are a rare thing and it's great you got one like that.

    I think it's sort of a cross between Dangle and Garcia...

    Lucky bum :) I'm happy to hear that they're decent blokes in person, it was what I expected but you never know.

    And why does Rich always have a black eye? I think he wakes up every morning and punches himself right in his face or something.
