Welcome to my
Goat Locker


So, why is this called a Goat Locker?
A sailor stores everything in a locker and there is a specific locker for everything.
Chiefs are the "Old Goats" of the Navy, thus the CPO Mess becomes "The Goat Locker"
This is my personal Goat Locker.



QMC (SW) HUSTED, USN, (Ret.)

I enlisted in the Naval Reserve in 1963 while a Junior in High School and served 8 years with the reserves.
In the mid 70s I left the Navy completely and was just plain civilian. (I call it my Hippie years)
In the late '70s I enlisted in the regular Navy.
In July 1996 I completed 20+ years of active service and was transferred to the Fleet Reserve.
I was placed on the Retired List in Apr 1999.

I have listed here my various duty assignments.
Each link provides some interesting and historical links for each command
as well as my own reminisces.

My military profile is also listed on Military.com.

These are my decorations.
