US Navy Highlights San Angelo Sailor


SAN ANGELO, TX — San Angelo native Andrew Cantu serves in the U.S. Navy aboard the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower and has been featured by NAVCO in a picture taken on July 31, 2020. 

The Navy Office of Community Outreach or (NAVCO) is dedicated to connecting Americans with their Navy. They provide information and pictures of hometown heroes serving their country.

The following description was provided with the image:

“Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Equipment) 2nd Class Andrew Cantu, from San Angelo, Texas, monitors aircraft catapult settings aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), in the Atlantic Ocean, July 31, 2020. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Strike Group is conducting operations in U.S. 6th fleet area of operations in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe and Africa.”

As most of the Navy's personnel and equipment are concentrated on America's coasts NAVCO oversees community outreach programs that aim to bring America's Navy to cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.

My dear Cajun Texan; The Photograph was taken by a Sailor whose job is to take photos. Her name is Elizabeth Cohen. I'm usually able to read the caption that accompanies a photograph. I saw that you were having a bit of difficulty, and thought it would be a courtesy to lend an eyeball.

Have a great day!

Cajun, a man who can laugh at his own foibles is to be respected... especially when he uses the words of the famous philosopher Bill Engvall. Now, if you could throw in a little Ron White...

"...and I backed down from the fight , 'cause I don't know
how many of 'em it would of taken to whip my ass.
But I knew how many they were gonna use.."

The first time I heard him I was bouncing along in a Jeep with three other scumbags on an unpaved ill-kempt ranch road somewhere about halfway between Marfa and Mexico listening to a tape of his. We were laughing so hard I thought we would turn that Jeep over which, of course, would have spilled the beer.

So, if I remember correctly, isn’t he the comedian who was bragging about how he caught a fish with a corn dog?

Oh yeah, I remember the same things happened to me when I was thrown out of a bar when I was stationed out in California. What happened was that two big guys each grabbed one arm and carried me to the front door of this establishment.

I noticed right away that my feet or my cowboy boots were no longer touching the ground.

So when we get to the door, I said that I only have one request and that is

Would you mind setting me down easy?

They said sure, my request is that you do not return tonight and maybe a good idea if you will just go on home TEX

Is that I grew up in a very strict environment. So we didn’t always have a lot of choice about what we could do and what we couldn’t do. So somewhere we figured it Out.

But what happened is when we were in the process of figuring all these things out, what end up happening to me especially. What it was or what happened was that I was losing all my best friends. That was when it hit me, that I would never see that person ever again.So I didn’t do so well because I didn’t want to lose them. But I did
