Leaving Japan

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Saturday, March 13, 2010,
I should be leaving Japan finally on Thursday the 18th. Then I get to spend a week and a half or so in Bangor, WA before the navy flies me back to Idaho.

About Me

Hmmm. I am(was) a sailor in the US navy but I am also one of the few sailors that can actually sail a sailboat since I have one of those. I am no longer in the navy but I will leave the last line there to get the veteran vote. I now work at Dupont as a Power control room operator. The biggest hobby of mine at the present time is picking locks and I am slowly getting better at it. I am currently looking for materials to build my own welder to teach myself how to weld. I am married to Crystal and we have one daughter and we are having a son soon (or if you read this after Januaryish 2011 we a son). Yeah not much to say.
