So it wasn’t necessarily as bad as I expected.

  1. I was never so proud as when I graduated! Co 732 GLAKES 1966. As I wound up as RM2 with a Speed Key Cert CLF-23, I was a happy camper.

    Too bad the rate is no more. I was proud to wear the "sparks" with pride. As a matter of pride, most of my former shipmates either call me "sparks" or "GW" (my "chop")
