Joined the Navy in 2009 right after high school, went through MEPS in Cleveland.

             I was born in Children’s Hospital on the grounds of Case Western Reserve University. A  few years later we moved to Lyndhurst I attended Charles F Brush High School. As a Junior I dropped out and joined the Navy, served for 22 years, from E-1, I reachedE-8, than Warrant Officer Than I applied for the LDO program  and was appointed to LTJG. I served on 7 ships during my career, starting on the USS LST 1154, than the USS LANING APD 55, USS Fulton AS 11, USS SKYLARK ASR 20, Nuclear Power School, than qualified at the D1G Prototype at West Milton NY. Than I was assigned to the PreCom unit for the USS TRUXTUN DLGN under construction in Camdan NJ. When I reached Chief I was sent to Pearl Harbor to the USS EG SMALL DDR 838. MY last ship was USS POINTDEFIANCE LSD 31 Than as Vietnam was winding down I was ssigned to CINPACFLT staff at Pearl. As LT my last duty station was COMSTA OHAU.  I miss the Navy and my only regret is that I didn’t stay in for 30 as believe I would have reached O-6 and I loved sea duty!
