"I was at NATTC Norman's AN"P" School from December 1957 to February 1958. Spent a week at the infirmary with what was diagnosed as acute gastroenteritis. At NTC Great Lakes boot camp my first choice was Aviation Structural Mechanic (AM), but was put into the Electrical/Electronic Section at Norman. Then I wanted to be an Aviation Electrician's Mate (AE), but was "convinced" to go to NATTC Memphis for Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) "A" School with the option of switching to Aviation Guided Missileman (GF)"A" School at mid-course. I made it as far as GF2 while stationed on the USS Midway (CVA-41) in the spring of 1960. Then the Navy disestablished the GF rating later in 1960 and converted me to AT2. Kind of a roundabout way for the Navy to get what they wanted of me. My understanding is that NATTC Norman AN"P" School was closed in 1959 and eventually ended up at Jacksonville via Memphis."
