Hey! Was that Gregory Peck one yours? I copied and saved that one a while back because I liked it...that alone should tell you I wasn’t kidding when I said I liked your work.
You and I were in at the same time...were you in Yokosuka back then? (I lived there for a few years back in the sixties...learned a lot there!)
Thanks for your service shipmate...:)
Good, yes I really liked putting together the Gregory Peck one. And it was informed by observing the good (and not so good) skippers I’d seen in my nine years in the Navy.
I passed through Yokosuka a few times in the mid-70’s. Then I was shore duty in Sasebo 1980-83, which was just wonderful. Found my wife there, so I’m still connected to Japan through her and NHK TV.
For me, the Navy was personally enriching. But it really didn’t prepare me well for the business world since the Navy aboard ship was about “operating” something as opposed to the producing, selling, and marketing you need do in the business world.
Still, I’m not sure you can easily trade the experience of seeing the world and learning new cultures. Living in Japan talk me a great deal about America’s pros and cons — still does.
