Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Joe Nebel, from the Pittsburgh area.

Best Moment
The day I (surprisingly) made Third Class Petty Officer.


Worst Moment
The day I came aboard as a Seaman Apprentice and was assigned to the deck force.

Other Memories
When I learned how to make the "system" work for me and transferred from the deck force to the Legal Office while my division petty officer, who kept tearing up my transfer requests, was on leave.
