Really don't want to start a fight here, but this doesn't add up...

"...received my commission in 1977; Retired from Navy diving in 1996 as an O6."

1. You must have been one shit-hot fast burner, to make O-6 before 20.

2. In fact, to carry the rank into retirement, you had to hold the rank for a minimum of two years.

3. Considering you got a line number with a delay in assuming rank, you would have had to have made grade at the about the 17 year point--well done.

4. But wait--you needed 20 years' service to retire, and you only show 19.

5. Based on what you've told us, with all due respect, your story just went Tango-Uniform.

WTFO?
