Yard Period

I came onboard the Sailfish in 1963. I believe the first yard period we were in was in 1965 at Philadelphia. Anyway, a bunch of us were working on my car when PB WIlkes (RIP) grabbed a can of ether and a lighter and made a torch. He didn’t realize I was at the other end of the Torch and seared the side of my head a little. The next morning at Quarters the duty officer looked us over and said we were a fine example of crew members as we had been working all night.
