No Regrets Navy

I've got to admit when I first got to recruit training I had my doubts if this was the right decision.

Hey Bro! I haven't been on for a while and was wondering how you were holding up with the virus. I had to have open heart surgery in early February and was restricted for eight weeks. We are good, not something I want to do every week. Now if we could get through the pandemic maybe we could get back to almost normal. Hope you and yours are all well. Stay healthy, stay safe. Danny

I tried contacting him via EMail that was listed sometime ago on another website but never got a response. As the years pass it becomes harder to remain in contact with past shipmates. I keep trying though. After over 50 years I'm still in contact with Plank Owners from the JRP.

Thanks David I can start with when I received orders to Vietnam, came in as orders to Vietnamese language  school. Called the detailer and asked how i got selected.  He told me I had aced my language battery when I joined the navy.  My reply to him that was Spanish one to ten, tell me what Texas boy cannot count one to ten in Spanish. Vietnam 67-68 caught Tet in 68.
