I went to recruit training (boot camp) at Recruit Training 
Command, San Diego. I was in company 207 and our Company 
Commander was Signalman Chief Majors. After graduation I was 
assigned to US Naval Hospital Corps School at Balboa Naval 
Hospital in San Diego. I was in Company 15-72, Company 
Commander was Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman Barbarin. After 
graduation, I was then sent to Camp Pendleton, USMC Base for 6 
weeks of field medical training. I was then classified an FMF 
Corpsman. My final assignment on active duty was to the USS 
Frederick, LST 1184. We were assigned to an amphibious 
squadron in the "Gator Navy".  After I finished my time on the 
Frederick, I was released from active duty and assigned to a 
Naval Reserve Command, Naval Reserve Surface Division 12-14 in 
Sacramento, CA.  After two yesrs I was reassigned to a USMCR 
unit that needed a Corpsman: Motor Transport Maintenance 
Company of the 4th Field Service Regiment, USMCR.  I finished 
my enlistment with that unit.
