Other Comments:
Retired in 1977 from the aviation Navy, entered civil service in 1980 and retired on my 60th birthday 2001 from NSB KingsBay, Ga, During the 9 1/2 yrs there I went aboard all 10 SSBN's, several "41 for Freedom" boats and the first SEAWOLF Class SSN. Quite an interesting 41 and 1/2 years, don"t you think?
