Made AMH1 in 1981. Retired as AMH1 in 1991. At my retirement ceremony someone asked, "You only made it to 1st class. I said hell yeah. I spent my first 10 years trying to make 1st class, and I spent my last 10 years trying to keep it. Nuff said . . .

Left the VXN-8 on August 30, 1967.  Went to college, seminary and pastored in 6 churches until 1998.  Retired and then Agent Orange took over and we know the outcome of that chemical.
