1962, Balboa Naval Hospital, San Diego, CA. I was there straight out of boot camp, in fact loaded into an ambulance out on the grinder right after final graduation ceremony. Spent three long months there with pneumonia, once stabilized they passed out daily menus and you made your three meal selections from quite a few different dishes which were served at our bedside. Their mess had won a string of fleet awards.
