50 Years Ago I Enlisted into the Navy Reserves

Kennedy and Kruschchev had their dramatic stare-down confrontation, known as the Cuban Missile Crisis on October 22nd 1962 and the surrounding days.  About two days later, swollen up with a surge of patrotism I enlisted into the Naval Reserves at NAS Atlanta. 

I went to monthly weekend reserve meeting, had boot camp on the Naval Air Base during the Christmas season, then in July, a week before my birthday I went on active duty for two years.

And here I am now with Navy memories.
