Great Lakes, January 1975.

Damn those ice storms coming off the lake were cold. I remember marching across the base one day and when we got there, the top half of the front of everyone's pea coat were white from frozen breath.

Today, 1/21/2015, marks the my 40th anniversary of joining the Navy.

Wow, 40 years...

It was a very snowy day then and it looks like today will be too.

My dad took me downtown Denver and waited outside for a couple of hours to see if I'd change my mind. I spent that night at NTC Great Lakes.

I remember I got in late in Orlando boot camp from the plane. I had just enough time to find a rack to sleep in. I remember a bunch of crazies screaming and yelling the first hour or so. I thought to myself, what is going on, hee, hee.
