After High school I was working in a plant that made circuit boards
and wasn't making enough money to live on.
I was too lazy to get a second job so I decided the time was right to join the Navy.
It was something I always had planned on. RIGHT? My father and uncle Al told me the truth. RIGHT? This is my first big undertaking involving my experiences in the navy. The next few pages contain some short stories covering the different phases of my naval career starting with why I joined to why I did not reenlist. This is a work in progress so if the stories stop suddenly check back I am writing every day.
