I was in Capetown waiting for a flight home for Demob '66 and a USA chap I knew who worked for the Consulate or something like that asked if I would consider,on Demob,a transfer to the USA Navy. He made it sound attractive,train up slightly to their ways and as I was a Seaman Gunner GA2,trained on USA 3"[Victorious] also Nile Qualified then after two years I would get USA citizenship. One snag was you had to serve in Vietnam! but considering the USA Navy never saw much of war except for the River Patrol boats,it would have been a doddle. I once did a two weeks swap on a Yank Carrier and they had steaks for breakfast! I could live with that! and a coffee pot bubbling away on every flat. I know that their Army and Helicopter/door gunners volunteers did get offered this Green Card acceptance[I read a good book by one UK volunteer who did it as a door gunner] Just wondered if anyone has from the Mob. I had 3 kids at the time so I couldn't but often wondered what if?but on reflection the I'm glad I stayed in the UK,I hate Yankee beer! Edited to add they have crap hats!
