After the Seattle I got my degree in electrical engineering and worked as an engineer for the next 15 years. I then left the engineering world to go to seminary to become a pastor and subsequently came back in the Navy as a chaplain.

Ship Story:

It was a long but great 4 years that fostered friendships that still last to this day. I had the opportunity to become one of the ship's first two SAR swimmers in 1985. My assignment in that was for man overboard situations. Fortunately / unfortunately I was the only one who fell overboard after I became a SAR swimmer; I fell from the boat boom while going down to work on a small boat when we were anchored off of Roosevelt Roads, PR.
