I was attached to the Canopus precom detail, NOB Norfolk VA out of EN "A" school as a ENFN on Nov. 1965. I had joined the Navy Jan 64 and served on the USS Arikara (ATF 98) prior to going to A school at Great Lakes. I was attached to 'A' division and left the Canopus Feb 67 as a EN2 in Rota for the 1st of a couple of tours in Viet Nam. During my time on the Canopus we met the ship in Charleston for outfitting and made the shake down cruise to Gitmo. I went on to retire as a ENC in '85.
