For those of you interested, a little background:
At the height of Richard Nixon’s Draft I volunteered for service with the
United States Seabees as a “2×6” Reserve.
My active duty assignments included training and two deployments with
NMCB 74 after which I spent a year and change as an “active reserve”
and the remainder of my six year enlistment as an “inactive reserve”.
Way back when a newspaper guy dropped by to visit-I can run but I can’t hide!
