I was with the Choir at Great Lakes Recruit Training Center February to May 1971 (back when we still had Camp Moffett active :~} ). We traveled to Evenston, Illinois to perform on TV. I wanted to keep performing but had contracted as a Corpsman and went to "A" school in Great Lakes. Had to switch to the Corps School Choir to keep performing.

I sang with the Great Lakes BJC when I was in boot camp, June to August 1968.  I remember practicing in one of the drill halls and the echo was amazing.  My all time favorite song was "You'll Never Walk Alone".  It would give me goose bumps.  The main event for me was the choir singing the National Anthem at the 1968 Green Bay Packers College All Star game at Soldier Field in Chicago.  I only wish I had a video of that event!  Another memory was "front of the chow line" privilege that we had.  And, singing Anchors Away while marching!  Currently retired and living in San Diego, California.  Life is good!
