Enlisted at 17, and went to Hospital Corps Class "A" school. Stationed at Bethesda, the Navy Yard and 5th MarDiv after earning NEC as field medic. Made HM1 while attending University of Louisville under the NESEP. Sailed destroyers and served on afloat staffs in Newport, and Mayport. After 23 years in the Navy and Navy Reserve, retired with the rank of CDR. Can't complain - joining the Navy was the smartest thing I ever did in life.
