Joined Marines in 1967 and served tour in Nam just in time for the Tet offensive. Needless to say this somewhat discouraged me on a carear in the Marines so I got out. Enlisted again in the Navy and ended up on a salvage ship USS. Conserver ARS-39 in Pearl Harbor as a OS. After four very nice years in Hawaii I changed rates (to LI) and went to SHAPE Belgium.Then to the USS Guam LPH-9 and was onboard for Beruit, Lebanon duty and the invasion of Grenada. Two years at Navy Nucular Power School in Orlando and then to the USS Raleigh LPD-1. This fine vessel took me to the Persian gulf twice, the last time for desert storm. Desert Storm was alot better than Viet-nam but wars get harder to take the older you get. Retired in 1994 after duty at Cinclant Printing Plant, Norfolk and went home to Indiana. I hav'nt seen the the ocean since. (Or stood a mid-watch come to think of it). But it was a good ride and rather exciteing at times. I'am glad I did'nt take that job with Po! st Office after high school-the one that had a future and was safe.
