In my entire life to this point .. the absolutely best decision I have made is when I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps back in late January 1958. My PEBD (Pay Entry Base Date) was 29 January 1958. I still know my USMC serial number.
After completing my USMC service I received a commission in the U.S. Navy CBs as a Civil Engineering officer. So I served with the Marine Corps and the Navy.
My father served with the U.S. Coast Guard during WWII.
My oldest son Robb served with the U.S. Army.
My youngest son David served with the U.S. Air Force.
So as a family we have served in the above five U.S. Military Services.
On this Memorial Day I salute all who served before, during and after my service. I especially salute those who served when .. as a child during WWII .. I was too young to serve.
Proudly I Sign Off .. Cap ..
