My Navy Career

I enjoyed the time I was in the Navy. I started out as a Boatswains Mate for 12 years I was a coxswain I drove just about every boat the Navy had. I even became a certified Craftmaster.

Scary Robotics ......think of all the…

For a half a century, the US Navy kept a lid on the details of the

incident that prompted this salutation. A Miami news reporter made the first public disclosure in 1958 after he stumbled upon the truth while covering a reunion of the destroyer's crew. The Pentagon reluctantly and tersely confirmed his story, but only a smattering of newspapers took…
