GREAT LAKES ILLINOIS 1962-1963 - Into the Navy

I joined the Navy immediately after high school and went to the training center at

Great Lakes Illinois.  I completed boot camp in the fall of 1962 and immediately

began Hospital Corpsman School graduating 1st in my class despite the beer.  

In April 1963, close Navy buddy, Ed Jezierney, toasting with beer her, and I were ordered to the

USS Hornet CVS-12 an aircraft carrier homeported in  Long Beach, California. Ed and I lost track of each other in Vietnam but reconnected 40+ years later.
