    I was Navy, but had the honor of serving with Marines twice, first as a Corpsman with the 9th Marines, and later as a PA with the 2nd Marines. Between those bookends I served on the submarine Gurnard, then independent duty aboard cruiser Jouett and minesweeper Pluck. Instructor duty at IDC school was the only shore billet I didnít terminate early to get back to sea.

    My birthday is 9/14 which was selected day #1 in the Viet Nam era draft lottery. Thanks to little league baseball injury requiring ankle be pinned back together, I was 1Y and didn't go.

    In career, I worked in Military Liaison for DOE Nuclear Weapon Complex and thoroughly enjoyed all contacts with military as we worked together to provide official maintenance or retrofit manuals related to nuclear weapons, mostly Army in my assignments and mostly time pressured. The training and skill evident with all personnel contacted was really impressive. I've been to Picatinny and Hawthorne Arsenals, Redstone, and Patch Barracks (a super BMW dealer just outside the gate).

    Not the same as serving obviously, but compliments are in order.
