About the Author:

Born May 26, 1925, Oakland, California of Danish Immigrants Niels and Anna Nielsen and who joined sisters Aida and Alice who played an important role in my development as a musician and athlete.Joined the U.S. Navy Feb 43. Attended Boot Camp and Radio School Idaho. Graduated RM3/c Jul 43. Ordered to amphibious and hand to hand combat training at Camp Pendleton, CA for my next 3 years of war at sea in the pacific. Advance to RM 1/C in 23 months and it was just in time for my emergency leave home to recuperate from the trauma incurred from the hit by a kamikaze on the USS Indianapolis (CA-35, the day before Easter and the invasion of Okinawa, Mar 31, 1945. More on that period detailed in the book.Discharged after the war, I enrolled in a Business College to take advantage of the GI Bill offered by Uncle Sam. Because I enjoyed my shipmates, and the Navy, I joined the Naval Air Reserve. As our squadrons grew, we moved to larger bases to accommodate every thing from trainers, fighters, and patrol planes.In 1952, I volunteered to go on active duty in place of a friend of mine who had 3 kids and had just bought a new house. Because he said he could not make it on his Petty Officer's Pay I decided to go in his place. The base yeoman arranged the transfer, but called me up and verified my college degree. She asked me why I didn't go to OCS? She told me that it was in Rhose Island. I agreed to apply, so she told me to pick up some papers and apply in San Francisco. I did, and 6 months later, I was sworn in as an Ensign in the Navy.My first assignment was to be a Communication Officer in Florida. Because I had been involved in naval communications for over 10 years, I was able to perform my tasks reasonably well. Plus, I met a beautiful girl Deana, fell in love, but she wouldn't marry me until she graduated from 3 year nursing school. Knowing this was the girl for me, I consented and we got married in 1957. We have produced a great daughter, Lori, and a fine son, Mark.Retiring
