Immediately following my 1962 graduation from Kings Point I sailed as 3rd A/E. Raised my License to 2nd A/E and sailed as Second in 1964. Called into active duty, US Navy, 1965, Requested orders to US Naval Flight Training, received my Wings in 1966. Flew in West Pac, following "completion of required service" I took my Honorable and returned back to the US Merchant Marine. Retired in 2002. I've been around. I still do a little flying today and hold a FAA Commercial Pilot Certificate, Multi-Engine and Instrument, and Certified Flight Instructor.
