My discharge from the Navy was I believe the fastest ever in recorded history..... due to MEPS screwing up my entry papers they allowed someone in that should not of been in there in the first place. I cracked two vertebrae the 5th and 6th in the neck area during a football game my senior year. The NAVY recruiter just entered into my DEP paper work that I had a minor neck injury. SO when they did X-rays do to my clumsy ass ship mates.....loading torpedoes and some idiot let go of a tow line.....laz fell.....went to go get checked out, no injury but they freaked when they saw the ossification on the 5th and 6th.....
well they wanted to do exploratory surgery then discharge me or I could walk with a Medical Honorable with an RE-3 Code.
SO I had no final exam, they just wanted my ass out....got my 10% diability, wich they took from me last year...... and left the service with a bad taste in my mouth....... from the time I fell to the time I was outside the gates tossing my uniform and dungarees back over the fence was about 2 weeks.
It sucked, cause I was really loving it, and I told the recruiter that I had "cracked" my vertebrae, shit that idiot was at the game!! They had to stop the game for a hr just to peel me off of the field. but I found out later that he was charged with fraud and was dishonorable discharged..

Oh no, I was not on a boomer,
fast attack LA class, bro.
It can get pretty tight on a LA CLASS when doing this, I had a line on, but when I was knocked off by the swing, I fell off the side, the saftey line caught me, and so no harm. But the prick of an XO wanted me to get checked out..... oh well, it wasn't in da cards mon for me..
