A lot of the guys when I was aboard complained 
about the sleeping quarters for enlisted men. 
1" thick mattresses and such. Ha. But not me! 
I loved serving aboard ship. I put in for a 
transfer from NAS North Island so I could become 
ships company. So yeah, I loved roughing it. 
You know, "Wooden Ships and Iron Men" or in 
the Ranger's case, "Iron Ships and Iron Men".
I was just going for third class when I injured 
discs in my neck and was discharged honorably 
but medically on 5-23-75. And my recent photo. 
What a difference time makes. Ha
