Permission to come aboard Sir.

It is good to be aboard once more, even if I am not floating on the tides.

Born in Camden, NJ.

Raised in Paulsboro, NJ.

Served aboard USS Raleigh LPD1 out of Norfolk in 1967 and then attached to VQ-4 at Patuxent River Naval Air Station in 1969.

Discharged in late 1970.

So many good memories and so many good friends who have slipped away in time.

Now living in South Jersey near Woodbury.
