As my signature line says: 1969 to 1973.

I enlisted in 1969, and went to basic training and hospital corps school in San Diego. I did my internship on the Burn ward, and that was one incredibly awful experience. Following that, I went to OR Technician school in Corpus Christi, Texas (which was one year OJT.) Following that, I went to Optician Technician school for six months in Williamsburg, VA. That completed the first two years of my enlistment, and then the Navy decided it was time for me to go to work. I spent the last two years of my enlistment at Cherry Point, NC, where I was POIC of the Eye Clinic, and I also stood night/weekend duty in the ER.

There were about 10,000 grunts on the base at that time, and about 9,999 of them got drunk and fought every weekend...so we got to see and repair a lot of them in the ER. When we pulled ER duty, we were on watch from 1700 on Friday until 0800 on Monday, and in theory we were supposed to be able to sleep sometime during those hours...however, most of the time we were seeing patients non-stop during those hours. I've sewed up or otherwise patched up many a drunk Marine, and almost all of them were incredibly grateful for me just doing my job.

A few weeks ago I found out there is no more GM "A" School. So do FC's fire the 5in54s or are those guns obsolete too?

I started out working on P-3 Orions, and spent the rest of my career on H-60 Seahawks. I spent my last three years working in IT which set me up for my new career.

No more "A" school? Every Gunner's Mate should have to experience the big green glass building and buffing concrete.

Well, I was in the Marines (a Department of the Navy) from '66 to '74. (RVN '67, 68, 69.) Does that count?
