Reenlist By: Frances M. McCrory-Meservy Sept 1976

We had been in Beaumont a little over a year. Al would leave for work at 7 AM and would not get home until midnight or later (6-7 day a week). He was making a lot of money but he never got to enjoy it and we hardly ever saw him. Business (Marine Electronics) was booming but not quite enough to hire another technician.

Stephie, Davie and I went to a little Baptist church close to our home. When my pastor could catch Al at home he would come over and witness to him. It did no good.

Al finally had a day off and took us out to dinner. He said he might as well be in the Navy because he saw us more when he was on a ship than he did now in his civilian job. He asked us if we would object to his re-enlisting.

I told him I wanted him to work wherever it made him happy. Stephanie wanted to know if there was a war anywhere and David asked, "Is anyone mad at us?" They definitely remembered Vietnam.  Al's answer was, "no and I donít think so."  They were OK with him re-enlisting.

Al re-enlisted in the Navy and they sent him to FL for 6 weeks.

Prov 30:18-19 There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yes, four which I do not understand: The way of an eagle in the air, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the midst of the sea, And the way of a man with a virgin.
