My Navy Career

Posted on August 23, 2014 at 3:47pm 0 Comments

I enjoyed the time I was in the Navy. I started out as a Boatswains Mate for 12 years I was a coxswain I drove just about every boat the Navy had. I even became a certified Craftmaster. My last eight years I was a Damage Controlman which I also enjoyed. I entered the Navy on July 26,1976 and I retired Dec.28,1997.
