so when I have internet I stay in contact with any number of my older retired friends and the common thread across the last ten years that all military guys need to grow their hair out and some sort of facial hair. Well since I spent 4 years out of the military before joining and I ran the full gamut of facial hair.
Now the goatee is quite popular (to be accurate it is really a “Van Dyke” that everyone is sporting–a goatee is only the chin). Well as I am not one to go with the flow or even the current I am not doing a goatee.
My current lifestyle leans me towards this fella….Mr Gibbs.
Please note he is sporting the “negative” of the goatee. I like his smooth and swag rich sideburns. As shaving is a total PITA on the boat this will eliminate at least 50% of the shaving.
I need everyone’s thoughts on this approach in a comment. Patricia is “disinclined to acquiesce to this request” but you guys can help me sway her.
