 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Retired from Active Service in 1994. Went to work with the American Red Cross Disaster Services in Port St. Lucie, Florida as a Disaster Coordinator. Transfered to Shrewsbury, New Jersey as a Disaster Director later that year. In 2000 transfered to San Bernardino California as an Emergency Services Director and then finished my career in 2005 in Palm Springs, California. One of my childhood dreams was to drive a big-rig truck, so went to truck driving school and got my commercial drivers license. Went to work with SWIFT Transportation as an over-the-road trucker covering all 48 states and Canada. In 2007 had to quit doing that due to medical problems. Finally retired for good that year. In 2013 went back to work as a Builsing Supervisor for Electsolve INC. Still doing that today.
Other Comments:
I was a "kiddy cruizer" so was discharged the day before my 21st birthday (19 April 1967). Worked for Pacific Gas and Electric in Hayward, California. Went back into the service in October 1967. Requested Swift Boats and got the Kitty Hawk instead. In October 1969 left the Navy for civilian life. Got a job with Pacific Telephone in Livermore, California as a cable splicer. In 1971 transfered to Pacific Northwest Bell in Portland Oregon. Transfered back to Pacific Telephone in Fresno, California in 1974. Left the phone company in 1977. Pretty much rode my motorcycle and partied until 1980 when I went back into the Navy and finished my career.
