Jim Tabor
Service Officer - Navy

I joined the Navy in March 1962 and reported to boot camp in San Diego. Following boot camp, I reported aboard the LST 1169 docked in Yokosuka, Japan. I served on it until Feb 20, 1964 when I was transferred to LSD 2 BELL GROVE, which was in route to Long Beach California. We primarily operated in the South China Sea, Philippines, Korea, Formosa and Vietnam. I went into the Naval Reserve in March 1965
