I remember that night out on the town.… on January 1, 2014

Landed at Millington in April, 1967. Never flown - or been out of New England before. Did reserve boot camp out of North 76 then on the AFun(P), MechFun and AME(A). Attached to barracks South 32. Home to Boston in late August. Scotch Canadian's photos are from that time and bring back special memories. I got back to Memphis twice over the years, as Curator of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but never had enough time to get back out to Millington. I was attached to reserve squadron VA 912 at NAS South Weymouth, Mass for the remainder of my military commitment. Worked on A4Bs. South Weymouth is currently being torn down by my brother's company. He salvaged the sign that hung over our maintenance facility. It now hangs over my garage. I went into the Navy only because of my draft status. It has been an important part of who I am ever since!
