What great memories and very well written! Thank you for your service.
I see you served on carriers. I actually started out as an AE but was sent TAD to the Seabees right out of “A” school and ended up cross rating. It’s hard to believe that this year I’ve been out for 40 years. The bad changes to this country started for real in the 60s. And it’s gotten worse each year.
We are in complete agreement. What we see now is what the radicals of the sixties had hoped-their kind, wearing suits as PART of “the Establishment” corroding it from within.
Heh, almost became an AE, eh? That is an interesting way you made that switch...:)
