I remember when I was in boot camp, and we were doing our field training at Camp Pendleton, California. We were camped in a valley at a live fire range, and when you looked up, you could see the mountains around you and the stars. It made me think of being in a bowl. It was beautiful.
Another of my favorite night sky memories was when we were on the ship headed to Saudi Arabia during Desert Shield. I would go up on the deck at night and look up. All you could see was stars. For that one reason, I loved being at sea.
