Deborah Sheingold Dills
Class of 1975
Navy, 7 Years

Came in as a E-1, (May 1979 ) and went to Pearl Harbor HI and drove tour boats out to the Arizona Memorial.I had a blast doing this.
Took my Petty Officer exam and passed and went to Charleston Naval Base. My rate was a Storekeeper , and learned how to drive forklifts and was stationed as support for the USS Canopus, a submarine tender ,which supplied the submarines. In 1983, I got out of active duty and went into the Naval Reserves as an E-5 and took my test for E-6 Petty Officer 1st Class Storekeeper. My duty station was COMINWARCOM which served to support the mineswepper fleet . I left the Reserves in 1987, due to having children and a husband who was also in the Navy as an officer who was on submarines.

I loved the Navy and would recommend to anyone who doen't know what they want to do in life. It was a very good experience for me and I grew up and was on my own. I had pride in myself and in my country.
