I enlisted in the U.S. Navy right out of high school and ended up spending about twenty years in the service. It was the Navy that brought me and my family to Mayport, Florida, where we settled in Jacksonville Beach.

You can view some of the travel photos I shot overseas on my photo website at Al's Navy Travel Photos. Here are a few samples-
