Classmate Bill Givens, serving in the U.S. Navy

"A shot from a group picture of me and my division..."
"Me in the captain's chair on the bridge of the U.S.S. Stein, the destroyer that Johnny and I served on together."
Bill with his brother Johnny

"I went to Vietnam on the U.S.S. PROVIDENCE, a cruiser, and he went there on the U.S.S. Fox, a frigate. When the US pulled out of the Nam, we got on this destroyer together till the end of our tours of duty. We did a peacetime western Pacific 7 month cruise together...and that was wild as heck."
