After graduation from MHS I wanted to get out of Midland in the worst way.
Jerry Petree and I joined the Navy on the buddy plan to see the world.
After training and school, Jerry went to Hawaii and I went to submarine
school in Connecticut.
I served aboard four submarines, two that were WW2 era subs and two
nuclear subs. I was transferred off the Thresher just before it went down. (I
lost my very close shipmate and friend Eddie Bobbitt and 128 other
shipmates when the sub was lost at sea).
