My son John called tonight from Naval Station Great Lakes. He got his Orders today. He is to report to the USS Doyle at Naval Station Mayport Florida Nov 18th. Dolye is currently attached to Destroyer Squadron Fourteen. This was his first pick when he filled out his Dream Sheet a few weeks ago. John was very happy when he called. The USS Doyle (FFG-39) is an Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided missile frigate. That is just what John requested. He is hoping to be able to come home to visit sometime around Christmas.
