Gunners Mate striker
        A few years later
and still having fun.

I joined the Miller crew after it returned to Pearl from the Saipan/Tinian operation and just before heading back to the States for overhaul. I had attended both Gunners Mate and Advance Gunners Mate schools in electric hydraulics, before coming aboard the William C. Miller and being assigned to the Gunnery division.
