     " The war was still going on in 1944.  I joined the Navy to serve my country- I took my Boot training at San Diego, Ca., company 111-44.  At the end of my Boot Camp, I went to the docks in San Diego to board a ship bound for Pearl Harbor- stayed there for a short while then boarded a ship to Maui.  I Stayed on Maui till the war ended, 26 months later.  While on Maui I was at NAS Kahului, first in naval ordnance, then struck for Aerographer's Mate and was assigned to operations. 
     In 1949 I rejoined the navy because of the Korean conflict.  I was assigned to the USS CABOT (CVL-28) for a short time, then was transferred to Washington D.C. and assigned to Admiral Byrd's staff to go to the South Pole.  Then was transferred to Port Lyautey, French Morocco from 1950 to 1952.  From there I was sent to help open NAS KINGSVILLE.  Was discharged at Kingsville in 1953.       I was not involved in any combat at any time in my naval career.  When I retired from the navy I went to work in the oil fields with Halliburton for six years.  Left them and went to work in a refinery for 23 years and retired from American Petro Fina.  Have not worked since- bought 3 RV'S and traveled just enjoying life.
