Class of 1959
Navy, 6 Years

Served from July 1958 to July 1964 in the U.S. Naval Reserve for 4 years and 2 years active duty aboard the USS Independence CVA62 as a Signalman and Radar operator. Served two tours in the Mediterranean. You may believe it or not, but they were shooting at each other in Lebanon even then. We were never fired upon but were almost constantly being observed by "fishing boats" with more radar and radio antennae than most warships. LOL
They were fishing for our secrets, not those swimming below. These were the days before hundreds of space satellites that know where everything and everyone might be at any given time.
