NAS Memphis Millington Tennessee

By: Carson Gibson "Gib"

One morning, instead of going to “A” school, I went to sickbay from the barracks instead of going to class first, then being sent to sick bay. In the tradition of shoot first, and ask questions later, I was written up UA. I was called to the first shirts office before doing the dance on the CO’s carpet. I explained to the first shirt the circumstances behind my being written up UA. Upon completion of my story, he asked me my name again. I replied “Pvt. Gibson” The first shirt said “oh, we’re looking for Pvt Carson, get the hell out of my office” This was about the only time it counted to have two last names.
