If it had not been for Drafting, Music, and Track/Cross country, I probably would not have made it out of Highschool. I guess I could also include shop, but music was the big one, being in the Jazz band, prep band, Orchestra, marching band, and bands outside of school.

After Highschool, I did one quarter at San Mateo JC and then joined the Navy. The Navy sent me to electronics school and then to computer school. We were one of 5 air squadrons to have computers for computing true positioning.
