Looks like I'm one of the "old (DC forever) guys" here. Started about June 1970. Didn't spend much time in Philly cause at that time I could fly home to Cleveland on weekends for $25 Military standby!!
After graduation I was assigned to the USS Mispillion AO-105 where I spent the rest of my 3 year enlistment.
