I did try to join the navy. My Dad…I even went so far as getting my application forms for the navy but anyhow Dad said he thought there was a war coming and I'd be out in the middle of the ocean, get sunk in the boat, so anyhow he wouldn't hear of it.

Anyhow, when things got bad in the Middle East, well, then I joined the AIF and that meant I could be sent overseas, and I actually joined for going over to the Middle East.
