What are you doing now: I am recent retiree of the Federal Railroad Administration's Chicago office. Eighteen years with the FRA. Prior to working at the FRA, I was with the Chicago and North Western Railroad for 17 years.
Other Comments: After leaving boot camp at Great Lakes, I was assigned to Light Photographic Squadron 62 (VFP-62), at NAS Cecil Field, FL. I arrived in June '62 and was there until November '63 when I was released to inactive duty. I was a DK3 when I was released, but I stayed in the active reserves and became a DK2 shortly afterwards. I was a school teacher during that time in Tulsa, OK. In the summer of 1965, I needed a summer job, so I signed up for three months temporary active duty. I was ordered to the U. S. Naval Academy and was assigned to the Medical and Dental Officers Indoctrination School. It was a class for Medical and Dental Officers to learn and prepare them for military life. I took care of their pay and travel expenses while they attended the school. After that summer, I moved to the Chicago area and was in a reserve unit at NAS Glenview, IL. It was Naval Air Reserve Maintenance Unit (NARMU 725). I was discharged in 1967.
