  • Military Highlights:
    While aboard the USS Purdy, Ronald was sent to a refrigeration school and then a fire-fighting school.

    A tour of the Mediterranean countries and a chance to see some of the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Italy.

    One of the things I did NOT like was going through the eye of a hurricane in the Atlantic.

    I had some very good friends while on the USS Purdy.
