"The Mike Douglas Show" .. I was a 22 year old Navy Signalman, stationed aboard the USS New Jersey, BB-62

Retired, U.S. Navy Signalman having served on U.S. Naval Destroyer's, Crusier's and Battlewagon's during the Vietnam War and throughout my Naval career ... The majority of these Vietnam Era ships were home-ported out of 32nd Street Naval Base, San Diego, California and assigned to Destroyer Squadron V ... I retired from the U.S. Navy in 1989 with a total of 27 years of service ... I miss so very much, steaming past Point Loma and sailing on God's majestic oceans of the world. 

 

 I can imagine a no more rewarding career, and any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with

a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy'
