I started my Military Career in 1958 when the United States actually had a conscription (AKA DRAFT or, the VERY Selective Service System).

Best Moment
The time LCDR Jerry Collins (N-4) ORDERED the chop, LT Houston (who was single), to bring a date to a social function because all the wives would be in attendance. So Gary brought an exotic dancer.

Other Memories
Worked with Canadian Dr. Joe MacInnis who was the medical director of the American Man-in-Sea program. In the 80s he led the teams that made the first scientific dives under the North Pole and discovered the world's northernmost known shipwreck - HMS Breadalbane - under the ice of the Northwest Passage.

Was privileged to be VADM(Ret)"Yogi" Kaufman's Horse-Holder while he was doing research work for his book "Sharks of Steel". What a totally super guy from the Old School.. (deceased 2006)

Also, in a frantic LDO shuffle (to keep from getting caught out by BUPERS), I got pulled out of the 5-Shop (Spec Ops) and stashed in Det Bravo, and later to the 4-Shop (Material).
