    Well, it seems like polls aren't too popular here on HT but what the heck, here, there's only six choices (reserves fall in with active, OK?). Me, I was in the Marines for four years active and the WI Army National Guard for 7 yrs. 3 mos.

    BTW, you can vote more than once, so if you were in more than one service vote for both.

    U.S. Coast Guard 28 August 1970 thru 27 August 1974. . .

    After boot camp served at LORAN Station Attu, AK, then went to commissary school and served six months at Radio Station Alexandria, VA (just outside DC.). Not being fond of large cities, I lucked out and ran into a fella’ that was from Alexandria who had orders to Alaska; aboard the USCG Storis , with help from the executive officer, we switched orders and that was the best eighteen months I ever had in the service. After my eighteen months, I was ordered to Norfolk radio station; at the time it was a transient base, supposedly to finish out my last six months. Not so fast, I found out that the USCG Ingram was doing a training run to Europe for the academy cadets and needed another cook, I volunteered and shortly thereafter was transferred to the USCG Ingram for the two-month trip. We pulled into a few ports, Oslo, Norway, and then onto Southampton and London, England, then on through the straits of Gibraltar, down to Lisbon, Portugal and finally to rota, Spain and then back to Norfolk, Va where I was transferred back to radio station Norfolk; which by the way was really in Berkeley, VA.

    I accomplished exactly what I set out to do, travel the world, because as a poor man, I knew I wouldn’t be able to do so on my own dime.

    The USCG Ingram has since been placed in the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum, located in Myrtle Beach area, but is built along the same lines as her sister, the Hamilton, which I used in the above link.
