I ended my career as a Legalman Second Class (E-5), with an EAWS qualification (Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist). Got the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for hostile action off of Iran in 1989 when the Haji's kidnapped and hung Marine Lt. Col Higgins in Tehran.
Loved the navy, but got tired of going to sea. Answered a higher call
