With Veterans Day around the corner, Ms. O'Brien's High School class was curious about what it was like to serve in one of our military branches. Lewis Burnett is a Navy veteran and a resident of Greene County. The class worked together and came up with questions and sent them in a letter to ask Mr. Burnett. He answered the questions and was invited to a Thanksgiving celebration on November 21, 2023! Thank you, Mr. Burnett, for your time and service! 1. What branch of the armed forces did you serve in and when did you serve? “I served in the United States Navy from 1955 to 1959. This was at the height of the Cold War. Our mission was to keep the Communist from spreading into Asia/Southeast Asia.” 2. What was your rank? What were some of your duties? “I was a 2nd Class Petty Officer. Some of my duties were listening to the radio, and listening to the Tactical broadcasts. I would have to deliver important messages to the Admiral.” 3. Did you serve on a ship? What was the name of your ship? What parts of the world did you see? “For part of my naval career, I served on a ship. I served on the USS Larson (DDR). The USS Larson was a Destroyer. We patrolled the Formosa Traits (which is now the Taiwan Strait). We also were stationed in Japan, the Philippines, and Hong Kong.” 4. What was the mission of your ship? “Our mission was to hunt for Communist submarines and escort and protect U.S. aircraft carriers (“our boys”) in case of hostile fire!" 5. What were the most dangerous/worst things you experienced? “The bad weather. We used to get hit by Typhoons! That made the ship sway.” 6. What was the best part of the Navy? "You got to see places and you got leave to visit these places." 7. How was the food in the Navy? “It was O.K.” 8. Is the Navy a good career? ”It is a very good career! They train you well! You will also have opportunities for nice careers after your service.”
