Served on Mills for two Deepfreeze Cruises and then left her in Baltimore. Out for college and then back in for time on O'Callahan, Robison, and Towers before choosing a career working for the Army. Guess I like serving one way or the other.

Hi David, I left the Mills in 1962, went to IC a school in Great Lakes, then went aboard a DDG. They sent me back to Automatic Telephone school. The DDG had a 100 line strowger switch system. - Old School stuff. Thanks for dropping by. Gabby
