Was stationed at RTC San Diego in June 1962 until August 1962. Did a lot marching all over the base and did the gas chamber several times. At the time, thought that we did a lot of things that would not be needed in my navy career but I was wrong. Every thing that I learned in boot camp was very useful during my ;military career. The USS Recruit was the first ship that I was on and enjoyed sit very much.After finishing boot camp, went through Radioman "A' school there. After finishing Radioman school transferred out to the fleet on board U.S.S. Howard Gilmore, AS-16 for further transfer to the new construction, U.S.S. Holland. AS-32.
