Went in on a "Kitty" cruise; two days before my 18th birthday and was discharged just before my 21 birthday. I had passed the RM2 test but was discharged before the new rank took effect.

Spent a few more months in the reserves and got to sew on my RM2 patch for just a short time.

Would like to hear from any of my old shipmates.
