Arrived in Dec. 1968 for BP&E school then BT/A school. Coldest winter in my life, for a Florida boy.

I attended boot camp at Great Lakes in November '76, Company 356, but I wound up back in GLakes about a year later, working at Bldg 2023, Cold Storage with a great bunch of civil service guys, another sailor and an army vet specialist, who inspected the food. Delivered all those yummy frozen eggs to recruit side, plus fresh and frozen edibles to main side, hospital side and even the odd trip to NAS Glenview from time-to-time. Not the most illustrious of naval careers, but I count it a great privilege to have served in any capacity.
