Want to Know What Really Goes On in the Navy? Well, Now Hear This! Any sailor will tell you sea stories relate bonafide historical events devoid of exaggeration or embellishment. Fairy tales, on the other hand, are well—fairy tales. It’s easy to tell the difference between the two. Tradition demands fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time,” whereas sea stories begin with “Now, this ain’t no shit.” The tradition of trustworthiness regarding sea stories is so sacred that no one can recall any instance in which someone questioned the veracity of a sea story. In the finest tradition of the United States Navy, Larry shares his navy experiences in A Ship-Load of Sea Stories & 1 Fairy Tale. Along the way, Larry answers all the questions you never thought to ask, including: · What should you remember not to forget just before a jetliner lands on you? · How do you avoid KGB kidnappers at lunchtime? · What happens when you throw an egg through a radar beam, and what happens if you miss? · Where’s The Shrubbery Inn, and why is it so cheap? · How do you cheat on navy exams, honestly? · What’s the best way to get stoned without breaking any regulations? · Why do things get complicated when you enlist in the navy while wearing your army uniform? · Why do economic forces indicate that a navy career is a better choice than an army career? · What shouldn’t you drink while watching Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars? · Did peace ever rule the planets, and did love ever steer the stars? It’s only fair to warn readers that the older Larry gets, the better he was.

His last assignment was as a submarine warfare officer aboard the USS William M. Wood DD-715 while she was home ported in Elefsis, Greece. In addition to writing, Larry, a retired CEO, fills his spare time with woodworking and furniture design.
