It was kind of it was kind of cool because like we had a graduation party that had to be the weekend before because it was graduation was on whatever night it was. And then the next morning my parents had to drive me to Odessa, about 90 miles away to get on a plane to go to boot-camp. So I had no college background at all when I joined the Navy, and I knew I always wanted to go.”
