About me:
I enlisted in the United States Navy on April 15, 1968 and went to boot camp in San Diego, California.  After boot camp, I attended the "A" school for Yeomen in San Diego.  I graduated from school as Yeoman Seaman Apprentice (E-2), and received orders to NIOTC (Naval Inshore Operations Training Center) in Vallejo, California, where they trained small boat operators for duty in the Vietnam war.  While there, I obtained the rank of Yeoman Second Class (E-5).  I volunteered for duty in Vietnam and got my new orders in about two weeks.  I served on board the USS Mark (AKL-12), a light cargo ship that carried supplies and ammunition throughout the rivers of the Mekong Delta. I was the ship's Yeoman from November 2, 1970, until our ship was decommissioned and turned over to the Taiwanese Navy on July 1, 1971. In December 1970 I was in my first fire-fight as I manned one of our two twin-20mm cannons located above the bridge.  My highest award was the Combat Action Ribbon.

I only wear glasses for reading and close up things such as working on computers. The picture on the right was taken from my Department of Veterans Affairs photo ID.
