    They still call it 32nd street! Best base in the states.

    As well you should !
    The older I get, the more I realize "life in prison" is not that much of a deterrent.

    Re: End of my Naval Career

    Spent the evening of the last day at a friend's house . . . watching a 20 inch B&W TV . . . maybe watched Bonanza . . . don't recall.

    Do recall LBJ coming on at 9 . . . big announcement about some uptick in Vietnam.

    Got scared that tomorrow I was going to have to stay.

    Finished my physical at Balboa . . . got on a plane . . . stopped in Tucson . . . headed home.

    It was all uneventful for me . . . hope it works out as well for you.

    May God bless,
    Dwight
