First An Entry About 1972

January 8, 2015 at 11:36 pm Leave a comment

August of 1972, nearly precisely a year after I entered the Navy, was when I was forced into the Traffic Checker job.  That’s exactly what it was to me, before I got it, by the way; a title and the knowledge that was someone who was pretty much in charge of the watch.  Even though there was a Chief, First Class or (on the mid watch) maybe a lowly Second Class nominatively in charge only one person was responsible for the correctness of what went on.  I was going to be a Service Clerk and then do Microfilm–that last one was one of the few Navy jobs that translated directly to an outside job.  [I actually had skills like being able to project and repair movie tape and didn’t know that was anything special.]

And I was taken to a back room and told that even though it was illegal to make me do it, they were doing it.  I had no choice.

For some reason, that’s what I’m reliving right now, again and again.  Thanks, Chief Smith, and First Class Milner.  And to the National Security Agency…oh, never mind.
