I went to boot camp at RTC SDiego on the 25th of November 1968 and went to sleep in a bottom rack of an open bay barracks. In the ensuing years there were the "best of times" and the "worst of times." I woke up 30 September 1993 in the morning and went to the naval station to sign my Fleet Reserve papers. It was all over.
