A Sailor of Today
Kreag Anderson joined the Navy in an attempt to build a career in the field of electronics. The Navy required him to sign a six-year active duty contract to secure their investment in his education. He became a radar operator and technician for the gun system on board the USS Buchanan. Due to his desire to chase ladies, and finding comfort in smoking pot, he fell just short of becoming a 4.0 sailor. He completed one Western Pacific cruise and spent a year in dry dock in Long Beach, California. He was also a guard for nuclear weapons. He spent thirty-eight days in the brig of the Philippines for an unauthorized absence. After an honorable discharge from the Navy, he attended New Mexico State University so he could spend more time with the ladies.
