Hope you enjoy your stay. Our ship visited the city of Djibouti in 1963 when it was the capital of French Somaliland. I remember some pretty wild French Foreign Legionnaires who were stationed there. Does the Legion still have a contingent in Djibouti?

Actually they still do...I was picking up some a navy commander at the Ambouli airport and a group of Foreign Legionnaires approached and wanted to trade patches. I gave them my "Don't Tread On Me" patch and they gave me their "Legion Etrangere" patch. Very cool. Another wanted to trade his white Legionnaire hat but regrettably I didn't have a combo cover to spare.

Usn 1969-1975

I enlisted the day I turned 18. Had I waited, my draft number would have been 25 or 19. I was on the 120 day delayed program and so entered on June 17th, 1969 and flew to San Diego that same day. I got sick twice and was set back; once for rotten feet infected with dye and once with a 104 degree temp for about a week. I spent 15 weeks and one day in BC. I extended two years in boot camp from 4 to 6 years for electronics school.

I would have never gone anywhere else, because of test scores, but I got a full year of training in NATTC Memphis to be an Aviation Firecontrol Technician. I should been an AQ3, but my discussion with a couple of Marine Sgts ended in Shelby County jail.

After school, I was transferred to VA-128, the training squadron.

I spent 4 years and 4 months in VA-165 [A6 Intruders] and made three tours of sea duty in the Gulf of Tonkin on the USS Constellation/CVA-64.

Amazingly, I got my good conduct medal and an honorable discharge, despite my selected undetected crimes and unauthorized absence from duty a few times caused by issues around drinking. My drinking came to a halt not long after my discharge.

All my life I have been working with criminals and crazy folks, some of which were not sailors, psychiatric aides, or correctional officers. So, I have been a public servant all my life until I retired in 2006. I no longer have to work with difficult people, or inmates. I no longer have to keep company with robbers, rapists, and murderers for 40 hours a week. That is all up to others who are younger and want to put their wives/children through that kind of life.

Retirement is WONDERFUL!
