BT1/1st Class when honorably discharged Feb. 12, 1988. Served aboard USS Miller (FF-1091) homeported in Newport, R.I. 1978-1982. Reported to Great Lakes Naval Station as an instructor for general military training also as a instructor for Boiler Plant Operations. 1982-1986. Reported to USS Dewey(DDG-45) served as lead petty officer forward Boiler room and lead petty officer of fuel oil/water testing lab. Went to persian gulf in 79' when the hostages were taken aboard USS Miller. Which interestingly is named after Dorey Miller the Black cook represented in the movie Pearl Harbor. While assigned to the Dewey this was the ship that was sent out to sea to help in the space shuttle Columbia exploded in front of all our eyes, this ship recovered the biggest piece of the fusilodge. I was nominated for sailor of the year while in Great Lakes. I enjoyed my time in the Navy, except as all service families did not enjoy time away from my family, given the choice to do it all again, I wouldn't change a thing, I had a very supportive family while I served which made it much easier.
