 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I was a member of the eight-man tackle football team at NTC San Diego while attending RM 'A' School fall 1966. Before joining the Navy, I played strong safety on the Long Beach State 49'ers football team.  We had many ex-college football players on the NTC football team.  Some colleges represented were:  Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State, Missouri, Long Beach State, Harbor College, New Mexico State, and Penn State.  The only teammate that did not go to college was a very big guy who was on medical leave from the SEAL teams.  I can't remember his name but I remember his performance.  He could run all day and night.  The only teammate that I recall is PN1 Green. He worked for EPDOPAC.
