|My graduation present was a union card and a job working at
Missouri Printing as an apprentice bookbinder. 20 Oct 1956,
I joined the Navy Reserve as an Airman Recruit at NAS St. Louis.
Went to a reserve bootcamp at NAS St. Louis during the summer
of 1957. The assistant Officer-in-charge was also the Director of
Admissions at Westminster College in Fulton, MO. He managed
to get me a 50% scholarship, so I spent the '57-'58 academic year
in Fulton while doing weekend reserve drills at NAS St. Louis until
it closed. The drill weekends were then at NAS Glenview, Illinois.
I was too dumb to get the paperwork done to continue the scholarship
Since retirement, I've just been relaxing, aging rapidly, and enjoying life.
Hang in there, Matt
