It seemed pretty good when I arrived at Naval Station Port Hueneme in California for training as a heavy equipment operator. After our first night on base they mustered all the new recruits and we went to the theater and watched John Wayne in the Fighting Seabees. After the movie we went out on the grinder and soon a huey helicopter came in and landed. Out stepped the Duke. He shook our hands and said a few words and then he was gone. Made quite an impression on this young recruit!

Amazing. When was that, if I may ask?
