A few weeks ago I started a thread here asking for input on where I should go. Ship selection for me has come and gone this past week, and I now know that I will be reporting to the USS Oscar Austin (DDG 79) out of Norfolk, VA. After talking to my advisor, I decided that a destroyer would be the best choice for me. I would prefer a smaller crew on a ship with the newest technology, so a destroyer was almost a perfect fit. Needless to say, all of the destroyers out of the nicer homeports (i.e., Pearl Harbor, San Diego, Yokosuka) were taken within the first few selections. Fortunatley, when it was my turn to choose, there were still several DDG's out of Norfolk left, and DDG 79 is what I chose. I'm looking forward to getting on the ship. I have heard nothing but good about the ship, her captain, and her crew.
