My granddad (here with me) is a 95 year old Navy Chaplain (WWII veteran) and later school teacher. AMA!
Hello! I am here as the scribe for my granddad, George, who has been kind enough to agree to do an AMA. Here is some about him. Here he is:
Granddad was born in 1918 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Dickinson College with a degree in Divinity and also a degree in Counseling from Harvard. He grew up through the depression, and became a Navy Chaplain (minister in the U.S. Navy [Methodist minister]). He served on the USS Appalachian, and the USS Mindoro (aircraft carrier), as well as serving with the Marines and the Coast Guard all throughout World War II. George moved to numerous different places, including Guam, Maine and many others. After his retirement from the navy in 1964, granddad became a chaplain at schools such as Perkiomen and others (memory loss :( ).
I will be reading the comments this gets to granddad, and will reply with his answer. Sorry if he can't quite remember some things. SOOOO....Ask Me Anything!
P.S. Anyone heard the story about Misty of Chincoteague? Well granddad was living there at the time of Misty, and got to personally befriend the horse. Cool huh?
