Good Morning All and I suppose I boast and embellish the Navy Seabees more than
any recruiter might have...There was a program at the beginning of the Vietnam War
when more very experienced naval construction troops were needed so a program
was instigated to recruit those types of civilians much like the action at the beginning
of World War II...Recruit with rank...we, there already, called them Instant Petty Officers...
the navy called it Direct Procured Permanent Petty Officers (DPPO's). Surely, it would
cause hate and discontent in the regular ranks, but it was good and needed. Chief
Too bad this book is a novel!
