Pennsylvania Navy Vets

I am sure Navy Veteran's originally from Pennsylvania are now living throughout the USA. Pennsylvania would be their home of record at time of entry into the US Navy.

Was born in Barberton Ohio (a long time ago) family moved to Philadelphia when I was a wee one. Grew up a few blocks from Shibe Park/Connie Mack Stadium home of the Philadelphia Phillies. What a time that was. While attending Northeast H.S. in 1956 I joined the Naval Reserve and completed Boot Camp @ Bainbridge during summer vacation. Upon graduating Northeast H.S. in 1957 went from Reserve to regular Navy. What a “GREAT TIME” I had while serving my country.

I was born in Coaldale, Pa. and lived in Pennsylvania all my life. I lived in Allentown when I enlisted in August of 1965. After graduating from Parkland High School in 1963 in Orefield , Pa. I attended technical school in Reading and then went into the Navy. I had received my draft notice but beat the time to report to Army boot camp by joining the Navy.  I lived in Schnecksville, Pa. after I was discharged and lived there until 2012 when I moved to Chambersburg. I worked as a line supervisor in industry for 34 years and then in the retail grocery business for ten more years before retiring in 2012.
