I signed up and my girl friend married me when I got back. I guess absence makes the heart grow fonder.

I signed up. US NAVY, and my wife followed me around with the kids for 20 years, even to Argentia, Newfoundland for my first tour and Ft Monmouth, NJ for my last tour. (Exceptions apply , the USN wouldn't let her accompany me on carrier cruises!)

I learned a lot, Newfoundland was fun, New Jersey was not, and NEVER volunteer still applies.

I think that William not only served on a gunboat up the Yangtze but as most of us have experienced at one time or another (debt, opinion, stash of old Ford parts, etc. etc.) he no doubt was up the Wazoo.
