  • Instructed EN "A" School from 1979 to 1982
  • I also attended MM "A" School and probably lived in the same barracks as Paul, but I was there from Sept. '65 to Dec. '65. I couldn't understand why we shifted to blues shortly after I arrived, but the next week it snowed and then there was always snow on the ground the rest of the time I was there. I returned to MM "A" School, only it was then called Propulsion Engineering School (PE School) in June '74 as an Instructor. I started in the 600 PSI Hot Plant then became a Plank Owner in the 1200 PSI Hot Plant. I remember that tour well, as I made Chief while I was there. I loved the duty but hated the weather, both in the winter (too cold and too white) and summer (just too hot and humid).

I received training by DEC on the DEC PDP 11/70 msin frame computer that operated the GE trainer and the new trainees would go on 12 hour simulated cruises using that trainer to simulate problems the crews might experience…
