Other Comments:

I was in Navy only two years but it was always  a  part of  my 40 years  with CSX RR and my 59 year marriage. I have never been able to explain that to myself -why that two years was so important in my life . I think I finally grew up in that short two years and the experience helped to make me who I am today..
