Thomas B, Client
Our wonderful client, Thomas, was in the Navy from 1957 until 1961 when he was honorably discharged. Now, Thomas enjoys his time at his Greeley home with his dog and three cats.
His favorite memory of the service was when he was in charge of the steam heat for the ship. Every night, a Junior Grade (JG) officer, a pilot, asked Thomas to change the temperature. Finally, a division officer, a captain, asked to be involved. The next time the JG officer stopped by to change the temperature, the division officer was ready and denied his request. In just two short weeks, the division officer had the JG officer transferred to a base in Alaska so he couldn’t bother anyone anymore with temperature changes.
Thomas would love to share some advice for younger people joining the service. First, check out every branch prior to enlisting so you can get a good indication about what you’d like to do in the service. Then, go in with your eyes open!
