Comments:

Vietnam '65-'71, Israel '73, Iran '79-80, the rest of the world in between - retired USN August 1986. Built a small chain of retail jewelry stores post retiring from the navy, sold out in 2002. Been a lazy sot ever since... 🤪

School Story:

I was there... don't remember much? Best memory: going to regular navy boot camp at Great Lakes, ILL for the entire summer between junior and senior year... then taking way too much crap from Tech's teachers about it. Coach Don Nylund was the worst for giving me crap about being a sailor. I guess he was army?

Got a draft notice (fall '65) when I was already IN Vietnam running the rivers in the Delta and trying like heck to not get killed. Never did understand why those little fellas in black pajamas wanted to try killing me and my shipmates.

The only easy day was yesterday. 🍺
No guts - no glory.
