Otis P. Driftwood’s Naval Career
In 1975, after 5 1/2 year in the Army Reserve, I decided to go on active duty. The Army wanted to drop me from E-4 down to E-2. I
wasn’t having any of that, so I walked out of that recruiter’s office and straight across the hall into the Navy recruiter’soffice. He said I would have to drop to E-3 and after he explained how the Navy Petty Officer system worked I said OK. 3 weeks later I
was at Great Lakes Naval Station in Waukegan, IL. It was December and the first time this Florida boy had EVER been involved with snow in any size, shape, or form. While there I attended a 3-week OSVet (Other Service Veteran) class.
