I was right out of boot camp, went mess cooking and compartment cleaning. with HS-2 My best friend was a guy named Joe Monte, he was from Boston area, shortly after Sept. I got orders to A school Lakehurst NJ of Aerographers school. After school I got orders to Fallon, Nevada. I remember the Seals coming into eat at 3 am when I was mess cooking. I also had a friend Bleacher.
