2/20/1969:  induction center in Los Angeles sent four of us to the brand new boot camp in Orlando.  I started in Company 072, spent a weekend in the base hospital, ended up in 077.  Mess hall was completed a couple of weeks before graduation.  The mock ship was ‘commissioned” the day of our graduation.  There was no naval training center facilities at the time.  All grads were sent to see except those of us signed up for advanced electronics or nuclear power.  I had temporary duty at Swan Island (reserve destroyer) in Portland, OR, before Nuke School at Mare Island, Vallejo, CA.  I was at S1W Nuclear Prototype in Idaho before being assigned to the USS Enterprise in 1971.  After one cruise to Vietnam, I had new construction in Virginia.  I was part of the first increment of the Pre-commissioning Crew for the USS South Carolina, DLGN-37 (changed to CGN-37 after commissioning).  I was an IC-1.
