Personal Memories

Best Moment

Worst Moment
All the double timing with combat packs and communications gear


Other Memories
After boot camp, our entire platoon had mess duty for 30 days. During this period I came down with the mumps and spent a few days at Balboa Naval Hospital prior to starting Field Telephone School at Camp Delmar
