75 years young + 1 day.
As a young Marine, it was rare for personal calls to be received at our barracks. The exceptions were typically when we returned back from a deployment and girls were calling looking for their baby daddy.
The true attention getters were senior officers or politicians checking in on their sons. Those were rare but received a lot of attention.
A lifetime ago my dad was in port, a civilian contractor working with the Navy. He’s good at networking and using resources available to him. It was quite the surprise to my command when he came calling for me starting with the base commanders office.
Needless to say I had quite the celebrity status for a bit. The reward was taking my dad to Club Femme Nu with my team for a night of fun debauchery.
