The first time I joined, was in the Depression. Jobs were hard to find and, I graduated from high school, they had several of the class that joined the Navy. I was drafted. They'd pass by all these people that are makin' the selections. They looked at me like they went, 1, 2, 3, you're in the Army. 1, 2, 3, you're in the Navy. And, you had no comeback from it.
