A Squid's Story: My First Four Years in the United States Navy
Join me on my first tour of duty in the Navy - what went on in Boot camp, the schools I attended, what life was really like on board an aircraft carrier that was better known for fires than anything else! Come with me on a haze gray and underway misadventure on a guided missile destroyer that had trouble shooting its own missiles (let alone torpedoes) and all of the unimaginable things that happened to me...the people I met and what I witnessed in between. Telling things as they happened, it's a hilarious, serious, yet very straightforward look at life in the U.S. Navy during the Cold War period (1980-1984). So set the sea and anchor detail, it's time to hit the high seas!

Mahe is a great restaurant: But the story here is that little airplane in the background... According to the book "From Jennies to Jets: The Aviation History of Orange County," Ray Crawford acquired an airstrip on a hilltop near Seal Beach in the late 1920s and started building gliders there. The market for gliders was slow, so Crawford turned the place into an airport. It got lots of use... pilots flew there to spend a day at the beach or to give beach-goers short airplane rides for a penny per passenger-pound It was popular for another reason, too. In 1930 a diner opened across the highway and derived its name from the airport. The original sign stated: GLIDE'ER INN and E A T Fish, Steaks, Sandwiches Tamales, Clam Chowder, Chili PRIVATE BOOTHS. The brotherhood of fliers began using the inn as a sort of lodge hall *. After the Navy bought the airport and the bay as part of the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, the Glide'er Inn was moved up the street about a block... where it remains today, though now 'Mahe'. There wasn't the freeway, so everybody was on Pacific Coast Highway. They'd all stop at the Glide'er Inn, including movie stars like Gene Kelly, Joan Crawford, Victor Mature. Inside, where aviation memorabilia covered the walls* and model airplanes hung from the ceilings and the "world's largest hand-carved propeller" decorated the bar. A sign was mounted beside the sit-down counter: "All aviators are requested to sign our pilots register". [Excerpted from Steve Emmons' LA Times article 7.21.85]. * Which reminds me of "The Happy Bottom Riding Club"... seen in the movie "The Right Stuff".
