Honored Military Alumni

Allan Garrett
Allan Garrett
Class of 1978
Navy, 20+ Years

Signed on for delayed entry before starting senior year and after sleeping through most of my classes due to working all night, I left for boot camp on July 7th, 1978.
Orlando Florida in the summer was NOT the best place to be but after finishing basic training I went on for school in Memphis where the weather was better but the humidity sucked.
First duty station request was "Anywhere California" and the detailer gladly obliged and placed me on the USS Ranger (CV-61) out of San Diego for three years of underway time.
Visited dozens of foreign ports from Japan to Australia. Good thing I took hundreds of pictures, otherwise I doubt I would remember much through the alcohol-induced fog of liberty.
Shore duty found me doing a tour as an instructor for electronic equipment troubleshooting and repair. It was here that I discovered an ability I never thought I would have: the knack for standing in front of a group of strangers and actually speaking coherently and cogently about any subject. This led me toward a Bachelor's degree in Workforce Education and Development with an emphasis in vocational teaching. Also started a family around this time enjoying the sleepless nights with my daughter as she grew into a young lady.
Back to sea duty where I returned to many of the same places as before, but this time with less drinking and more sight-seeing.
Shore duty back in San Diego, sea duty again, and finally shore duty for the final tour where I retired as a Chief Petty Officer (E-7).
Outstanding memories, lifelong friends. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
