Comments:

Since graduation and joining the Navy, in 1956, my life went into Hyper-drive, and continued until I retired, disabled, in 1996. In that short 40 years I: retired from the Navy, as a Navy Chief, having served on 4-surface ships, from Sub Tender, Destroyer, to Aircraft Carrier, also 5-submarines, my first one being a WWll diesel/electric (pig boat, which I loved), and 2-nuclear missile, 1-experimental, working in ocean science, and 1-spy sub;
either on, or under the sea, I crossed the equator four times, went almost to the North Pole once, under the Arctic ice flow;
proudly served: Viet Nam, and a couple other 'police' actions.

I also filled a few years as a plumber; projectionist; builder; scout leader; counselor; farmer; insurance salesman; Real Estate broker; and elected public servant.

And in my home time, I was fortunate to be the father of five wonderful children. Military wives, especially 'Navy,' must be very unique in their abilities, as they are too often and too long wearing two hats of parenting, whild the other parent is serving country in far off and exotic places (like under water, up in the sky, etc). I was lucky, for the time I could be tolerated.

Since retirement, I now spend my week-days mostly on my PC, either studying God's word, or participating in Faith Forums; striving to understand and help others to come to and understand our Messiah. The time is very short, as I see the events coming to pass, unto the soon return of Jesus. (I still have excellent use of my voice, and use it to sound the Good News.
Saturday and Sunday, I celebrate Sabbath, and then the Lords day. Ah, What a way to enjoy mortality.

After graduation, in 1956, one of the first things the U.S. Navy taught me was that I was not as stupid as I had thought myself to be, by teaching me something I absolutely knew I could not learn: Morse Code. I learned it. With that lesson learned, I became an addict to learning. Life at sea also taught me that one could be a 'Jack of all Trades,' but instead of being a 'master of none,' we could actually become 'master of most;' and Away I went. To all the wonderful tax paying citizens, I thank you for feeding my addiction. This is what I enjoyed, and you paid for:

US Navy, training and technical, numerous, and diverse; total of 8-years classroom time (Any place, Any time, Any school).
Fairfield College, to launch my academician studies.
Grossmont College, Grad.
McCook College, Grad. Total years: 7.5

As Elvis would say: 'Thank-ya-vereh-mush.'

School Story:

Member of the First Graduating Class at the 'NEW' High School, on West 7th St. (No longer called the 'NEW' High School, by the present students) But in our hearts, the Class of 56, it will be NEW, forever, or until we forget through aging, which ever comes first. Most of us would probably say we Loved the Old HS almost as much. Each had it's own character to be rememberd.

Happy Birthday, almost done,
Hope you had a lot of fun,
I pray you're well, and in God's hands,
As, Soon, I think, we have new Wedding Bands.
