I started out enlisting in the Navy i 1960. My intentions were to do four years and get out in order to attend college. Alas, I wound up re-enlisting while I was stationed in Japan. I literally, "Saw the World." Most of my assignments were overseas. Twenty eight out of thirty four years for were at overseas duty stations. It was about equal in years between the Pacific and the Atlantic. I spent 20 years as an enlisted man and 14 as an Officer. My highest enlisted rank was AVCM (E-9) and officer rank was CWO (W-4) If I had the chance to do it all over, I would have remained enlisted. However, W-4 retirement pay is much higher than E-9.
