N.A.T.T.C (Naval Air Technical Training Command Millington) Was a break of sorts for me . Not only was the base far from the ocean , but also on the same base where I was Trained after Boot-Camp. So When my Advanced Avionics School Was Complete , I got orders to the Basic Aviation-Electrical-Systems-Maintenance school , where I first learned my trade as an E-1 . The same classrooms that I once sat in a desk , I now Had a podium instead! , and I was an E-5 too. The Training I got was not just on public-speaking , but how to teach the young people of my trade. While stationed there , part of my duties was live in and be a supervisor of sorts at our barracks every month or so . My naval duties were 1 thing , but when my son came to live with me , I became a mister-Mom too. Going from SWM to a single-parent was quite the adjustment for sure. When I first learned of my new role , I went shopping for a new home. And being of the mobile type of life , I found a new mobile -home , since it had wheels and could move with me , when my tour there endsThis story is 2 parter for sure!
So more next time…..
