15 Jul 07: Message from Jerry
Give my reguards to Jim Adams and Peregoy. Jim tried to teach me
Geometry in the shipyard and Peregoy signed me off on the Torpedo Room for my
qualifications. I wish I could be there. I missed the last reunion because the
school district I work for required me to do in service training at that time.
Since I left the Tiru I serve in the USS Barb and USS
Remora as well as time on the USS Cook APD 130 in Vietnam. After I left the navy
I went to College and received an Engineering degree from Brigham Young
University(1974)and worked on the Boeing Space Shuttle Program, building and
modifying them in Palmdale California. Since 2002 I have been an Elementary
Teacher for the Palmdale California School District. Jerry Nieto QMSN (SS)
