Bob's Veteran Story

Bob Smiling at the Camera

"I joined the Navy Reserves when I was in High School. In 1951, I was at Wake Forest University on a football scholarship. It was then that my whole unit was called to active duty. Following course school in Bainbridge, MD, I was lucky to be able to choose to work at the Camp Lejeune Naval Hospital. I was there until I was discharged in June of 1953. I was a few weeks shy of being sent to Korea with my buddies."  -Bob Talley, Navy, 1951-1953
