Comment Best crew I ever served with. The best NGFS team I ever had the opportunity to train. They could put a five inch round on a marble at twenty-four thousand yards, Thank you FTG's, OS', QM's, GMG's and topside personnel for your precise calculations and pride. And least I forget the entire crew for your support. The engineers, the BMs, Cooks, supply personnel and Officers all got us there and supported us throughout our missions and those sometimes long GQs for gunnery.
