I served in the US Navy during the Vietnam Era 1969 - 1972 on the submarine USS SKIPJACK SSN 585 and was honorably discharged back into this nutty society. Was E5 when I left the service. I was a Machinist Mate & also a member of UDT for the whole time enlisted. Worked on all the Oxygen Generators and O2 Burners the Air Conditioning plus pumps etc...

Also kept all the screen doors in good condition too!!:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

US Coast Guard 1979-1996*
Yeoman, First Class (E-6)
Mostly stationed on east coast, New England area, and the eastern Great Lakes (Cleveland, OH and Buffalo, NY).

*In 1996 & 1997 (if you all remember) Congress & President Clinton signed a bill that dropped the 20 year military retirement down to 15 years. Anybody E-5 and above could fully retire at 15 years. I weighted the pros and cons and decided to go for it after 17 years. Word has it that they had to shut it down real quick, because so many members got out!! It was called TERA (Temporary Early Retirement Authorization).
