I, too, am fromt he VN Era, having served 1963-1967. I was a journalist 2nd class petty officer when I was discharged in '67. I extended my tour 8 months in order have one year obligated service for a promotion to JO2. After Bootcamp at Bainbridge, I went to "A" school at Great Lakes and was part of the schools command. Upon graduation, I was given orders to NAS Pensacola, CNABATRA Staff, in PAO. I was subsequently transferred to SIO, NAS Pensacola and worked on the base paper, The GOSPORT. I met my husband there and we were married in the base chapel in 1966.
