Sorry I didn't get back sooner, the web site was down for maintainence......I was a Security Patrol (kinda like a cop, not to be confused with a Shore Patrol) when I made third class.

My CMAA had me take a Journlist course when I was a Snipe (MR striker) and when I

got my crow I became a 3rd Class Journalist. Wasn't long before they shipped my young butt out of Panama and sent me to Antarctica. Quite a change in temperatures.


I grew up around Raymond and Marysville and graduated in 1961. Haven't been around there for a lot of years since 1967 when I got my discharge and moved to Florida.


You might know a fellow VFW member in Marysville, he's a retired chief Max Amrine. We went to high school together.

Welcome aboard from a fellow Marysville-ite. I joined the Navy
in 1963 and didn't stay any longer than 1967. I'm now retired
and living in North Carolina. THANKS for your service.

Eugene I would like to invite you to visit Project 365 Vets. This is a project I created to honor a veteran a day, every day of 2012. We are honoring veterans through their stories, told in the own words. We would love to feature your story on our site, if you would consider sharing it with our readers, we would be most honored.

I have seen the UC Honor Guard in service many times.  Thanks for that valuable and honorable service you and your comrades provide.  I know it is a comfort to the family, even when you are in 100 degree heat or 20 degree wind chill. 

Hopefully, you can get straightened out with the VA!
