Dale and I were friends in HS and we both, along with 8 others, joined the Naval Reserve for an 8 year commitment, in our senior year. Dale went directly to the Navy and I to college after graduation. Did not see him again until one summer 4 years later when I reported onboard the USS Tweedy, DDR, docked at Newport, RI for my annual 2 weeks training duty and after getting settled, I went up on deck to watch the sunset, when who should I see coming down the dock to report to the same ship, but Dale. I think that was his last duty assignment in the Navy and I also learned that he was married, I think to a girl also in the Navy. I miss him.
