    When I left home in the Spring of 1967 headed for U.S. Navy boot camp at Great Lakes Naval Training Center, I was 19 years old. I traveled by train from Harrisburg, Pa. to Chicago, Ill., changed trains and then on another train to Great Lakes NTC. It was the start of the long journey that has become my life!! I understand Uncle Charles’ feelings and anticipations as he started on his journey. It has been a long and surprising trip. And it’s not over yet!! Thanks Mark .. keep up the good work!!
