My CO at Marine Corps Schools,
NAS Memphis, found out that I had a ham license and took me over to meet
the guys that hung out at W4ODR, "Whiskey 4 Old Dusty Rebels" and it all
came from there. I didn't know there were hams in the Corps until then.
Found my way to the Mars station
on Okinawa after requesting a transfer to Okinawa in late 1960.
It was fun - & I enjoyed working
with the guys that needed our service to get with the folks back home.
PFC, 1959 - 1960
