    Haven't been through any Super Typhoons, but a couple of hurricanes at sea as we hauled azz to get away. Far away was never enough. Roller coaster ride time. Worst at night. Can't see the waves coming.
    ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. THEN GOD CREATED DESTROYER SAILORS.

      Like waves in the IO. Could never get more than 30 minutes of sleep.

        Good thing you were not on an LST. Flat bottom hulled. You could smell the puke for miles.

          LHA 1 was enough. With JP5 in the potable water and sewage backing up in the showers.

            I've heard horror stories about The Tarawa class and the sewage systems. As well as the JP-5. Bad enough of a Tin Can to smell like DFM-distillate fuel marine, not quite JP go juice but good stuff, all the time.

              Great times, great era but horrible ship. Only the guys made it a fun 6 month ride.
