I moved my first attempt at blogging from Blogger to WordPress today. My other blog are observations of daily life mostly reflected in adventures and sometimes misadventures of my two dogs. This blog, Truths, Half-truths and Sea Stories, I hope you will find entertaining and thought-provoking. It is my second blog hosted on WordPress, and expresses more salty insight into daily events.
I retired in April 2010 ( 7 years ago), after combined Active, Retired, and Inactive service of more than 32 years in the United States Navy. I took my initial ASVAB aptitude test while the Vietnam War was all but ended ( 1975), entered bootcamp when Jimmy Carter was President (1977), and then re-enlisted into Active Duty after George H. W. Bush succeeded Ronald Reagan as President. Since I retired as a Reservist, I am eligible to claim a pension starting at age 60 ( 2 years from now).
