There was no NTC in 1969 when I was in the initial Co. 077.  The only guys that went to school instead of the fleet upon graduating were us Nukes and ET's.   I went to IC "A" School in Great Lakes, then Nuclear Power School at Mare Island, and the S1W nuclear submarine prototype in Idaho.  All this after being inducted in Los Angeles.  I never saw San Diego as a sailor until I boarded the USS Enterprise in 1971.

@ Julie Allen - Thanks! I intended to do my four years and get out but I kept re-enlisting. I did get out for a while but came back home and enjoyed every minute of it!
