I always think of Frank when I see this classic old recruitment poster. The stance of the sailor, how he wears his hat and his build. I remember my mother commenting on this poster years ago, saying it looked like him.
I never considered joining the service. However growing up in our household the Navy was there as well. I remember as a child going on and off of bases. Lakehurst, Naval Weapons Station Earl, McGuire A.F.B. and many hours in the lobby of V.A. Hospitals. I consider it heritage.
