This is my last Challenge article as I retire from active duty in the Navy as of 1 September. It has been 43 years since I raised my right hand and took the oath to enlist in the Navy. It is a strange quirk of fate that it all began here in Newport, for I arrived here for recruit training on the old Fall River liner Priscilla. It will all end here almost a half a century later.
